    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The population of a species is governed by the discrete model

    Nt= f(Nt) = Nt exp[r(1-Nt/K)] where r and K are constants.

    2. Relevant equations

    Determine the steady states

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Nt+1= f(Nt) = Nt exp[r(1-Nt/K)] where r and K are constants, presumably.

    Yes, I would presume r and K are constants.

    Do you know what a "steady state" means? That gives you the first step.
