I don't think you need to use the Arrhenius equation here.

I presume that the question deals with the kinetics of a first order reaction, and that you are supposed to derive the equation....

In than case, start off by writing a simple first order equation and write the rate equation for it.
Example : A  :rarrow: B
              What is d[A]/dt...Proceed
