\frac{N_{1}}{N_{2}}=\frac{N_0e^{-5\lambda t} }{N_0e^{-\lambda t}}=\frac{1}{e^{2}}

e^{-4\lambda t}=\frac{1}{e^{2}}

en \left ( e^{-4\lambda t} \right )=en \left ( \frac{1}{e^{2}} \right )

-4\lambda t=-2

t= \frac{1}{2\lambda }


Option 1)

\frac{1}{2\lambda }

Option 2)

\frac{1}{4\lambda }

Option 3)

\frac{1}{\lambda }

Option 4)

\frac{2}{\lambda }
