Half Life [ENDORSED]

$aR \to bP, Rate = -\frac{1}{a} \frac{d[R]}{dt} = \frac{1}{b}\frac{d[P]}{dt}$

Half Life

How would you determine the half life of a reaction that has multiple reactants whose concentrations affect the rate of the reaction?

If I remember what Dr. Lavelle said in lecture correctly, he mentioned that they would give us experimental data or there would be a situation where only one concentration would be feasibly changing over time because the other reactants would be at a much higher concentration.
