1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I'm working a problem that involves a predator-prey relationship scenario. There will be a total of 600 "steps" and I need to calculate the population count for each step. At this point, I'm just trying to calculate the prey population count for step one. It's been a long time since I had much math practice and I am confused/frustrated. a = 0.165 b = 0.0006 x = 250 (prey count) y = 10 2. Relevant equations dx/dt = ax - bxy 3. The attempt at a solution My attempt was to just plug in numbers for the right hand side of the equation, like so: dx/dt = (0.165 * 250) - (0.0006 * 250 * 10). I came up with 39.75, but considering the count started at 250, 39.75 seems very wrong. I believe dx/dt is change in population over change time, however I am not sure what to do with that part of the equation. Any help would be appreciated.
