Hi, I have a question regarding natural growth and logistic models. According to my textbook, any exponential equations, P(t) = e^kt can be expressed logistically as P(t) = K/(1 + Ae^-kt) where A = (K-P0)/P0. When I applied this rule to P(t) = e ^0.0015t, and P(t) = 6000 / (1 + 5e^-0.0015t) it worked fine. The results were so close. But when I tried to do the same thing for P(t) = 400e^1.0986t and P(t) = 10000/(1 + 24e^-1.0986t), the results were so different from each other; 1199.98 and 1111.098 for P(1). Did I do something wrong here or they don't work if k>1?
I would appreciate it if I can get any help with this problem. Thank you in advance.
