Half life equation model

An organic sample from a Chinchorro mummy was found to contain 54.29% of the relative proportion of carbon-14 found in living matter and the atmosphere. Approximately how long before the carbon-14 measurements were made had the mummy been buried? (The half-life of carbon-14 is 5730 years.)
