    you can simplify this formula: \[A=A _{0}e ^{-kt}\] to this: \[A=A _{0}(\frac{ 1 }{ 2 })^{\frac{ t }{ t _{1/2} }}\] A=amount after time elapsed Ao=initial amount t= time t1/2= half life

    you can also approximate 16min as 1/4 of 1 hour, so 4 half-lives will pass over that time span. 1/16 of the 1.20g will remain after 1 hour (more or less)
