A wooden object was discovered at an anthropological dig site. After conducting tests, scientists determined that there was 0.015 grams of Carbon-14 remaining in the wood. It is believed that originally the piece of wood should have contained 0.035 grams of Carbon-14. How old is the object?

0.015 =0.035 x 1/2^(y/5730)


3/7 = 1/2^(y/5730), solve for y


y≈7004.31 - Years.
