## Homework Statement

If a patient is given a radioactive isotope which has a half-life of six days and a biological half-life of ten days, what is the effective half-life for the isotope.

## Homework Equations

I know the formula for half-life calculations is T1/2 = 0.693/k

## The Attempt at a Solution

I don't know where to start with this. My tutor just briefly went over it. It was a question on a past paper so I just want it covered in case it comes up in my exams.

Any help I'd be grateful. Thanks.
