In a science lab, a petri dish hosts a healthy colony of yeast for an experiment. Now every minute, all the yeast cells divide into two. At noon, there was just a single cell of yeast and at 1:22, the Petri dish was half full. Can you calculate when the dish will be full of yeast?

Quick Fire Maths Question

Since at every minute, the cells of yeast are multiplying into two and at 1:22, the dish was half full, it will become full the very next minute i.e. at 1:23.
