Can the age of this branch of mtDNA be estimated using the following data?

Using 16 FMS samples (which are the K1a10a C16291T block at http://www.ianlogan.co.uk/sequences_by_group/k1a10_genbank_sequences.htm )

The average number of mutations is 33.375

The Standard Deviation is 1.183

The square root of the SD is 1.0876

I don't have spreadsheet software/expertise, and I don't know how to calculate "Soares rho value."

Do I have enough information to estimate the age of this branch?
