amount = a e^(kt) where a is the initial value, k is a constant, and t is in hours

1200 = 600 e^(k(4)

2 = e^(4k)

4k = ln 2

k = ln2 /4

amount = 600 e^((ln2/4)t)

when t=8

amount = 600 e^(2ln2)

= 2400

well, duh

Since the doubling period seems to be 4 hours

in 8 hours they would have doubled twice

600 --> 1200 --> 2400
