**DrBob222**, Thursday, February 23, 2012 at 3:00pmALL radioactive decay problems are first order so you use ln(No/N) = kt.

If you want the half life in hours, leave it as is. If you want it in min or seconds, then convert the 24 hours to some other unit. Since the problem doesn't specify, I would leave it as 24 hours.
