So Radioactive!

The half life of Pb(212) is 10.6 hours. It undergoes decay to its daughter nucleus Bi(212) which has a half life of 60.5 minutes. Calculate the time in minutes (to the nearest minute) at which the rate of the reaction is maximum, i.e., rate of disintegration of Pb(212) to the final product is maximum.
