Nonlinear DE from SI epidemic

  1. Dec 6, 2008 #1
    Hi, what kind of technic should i use to solve the below DE?

    dx/dt=x^2-cx, where c is just a constant.

    Many thanks

    That's trivially separable. Integrate
    [tex]\frac{dx}{x(x-c)}= dt[/tex]
    using "partial fractions" for the left side.
