## Homework Statement

Suppose that we use a Michaelis-Menten growth rate in the chemostat model, and that the parameters are chosen so that a positive steady state exists. Show that

N = f(V,F,C

_{0}) = (C

_{0}(F - VK

_{m}) + FK

_{n})/(a(F - VK

_{m}))

and

C = (FK

_{n})/(F - VK

_{m})

at the positive steady state.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I don't even know what this question is asking. I copied it word for word; there are no typos on my end. The problem can be seen at this link:

www.math.rutgers.edu/~sontag/336/notes336_06.pdf on page 109. Any help on what this means would be wonderful!
