What is the figure that gives the half-life of the isotope in minutes to 4 significant figures?

Exponential regression on a set of data, which gives the amount of atoms of a radioactive isotope remaining after a time X minutes, produced the following output.

ExpReg

y = a*b^x

a = 10001

b = 0.90002
