Force of evolution operating on the locus

Assume you are analyzing a dominant allele in fruit flies (R) that mutates to a recessive allele (r) at the relatively high rate of 10-6per generation. Assuming that mutation is the only force of evolution operating on this locus, how many generations of fruit flies would it take for the frequency of R to change from 0.99 to 0.90?
