Here is the first question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A population P obeys the logistic model. It satisfies the equation

Assume that P(0)=3. Find P(66)

First I multiplied both sides by dt and integrated, giving:

P=6/700Pt(7-P)+c

If P(0)=3 then c=3

P=6/700Pt(7-P)+3

Then I divided everything by P and had

1=6/700t(7/P-1)+3/P

Now to find P(66)

1=6/700*66(7/P-1)+3/P

1=396/700(7/P-1)+3/P

1=2772/700P-396/700+3/P

4872/700P=1096/700

P=4.445

That's not right, what am I missing?

Thanks.
