Homework Help: Differential Equation

    This is a link to the problem

    I have the differential equation [tex]\frac{\mathrm{d}B}{\mathrm{d}t} = .15*.007950 - (.0039+.0322)B[/tex]

    I tried solving the equation by factoring than separating the variables and integrating but I was confused about what the initial condition should be.

    the initial condition is something that is specified...

    why not try showing your work, so I can see where you're stuck
