This has been posted before but i didn't understand the answer(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Suppose the number x(t) (with t in months) of alligators in a swamp satisfies the differential equation

dp/dt = 0.0001x^2 - 0.01x

(a) If there are initially 25 alligators in the swamp, solve this differential equation to determine what happens to the alligator population in the long run.

(b) Repeat for an initial population of 150 alligators."

i am totally clueless about this one?
