A certain strain of bacteria divides every four hours. If a colony is started with 10 bacteria, then the time t (in hours) required for the colony to grow to N bacteria is given by

t = 4(log(N/10)/log2

Find the time required for the colony to grow to one million bacteria. (Round your answer to two decimal places.)
