Main Question or Discussion Point

I've been trying to figure out a way to get an approximation to a complex DiffEQ.
dx/dt = c1 / (c2 + c3*x*t)
Does anyone have any input on wether this problem can be approximated?
Thank you.

Do you really mean complex, or simply "complicated?"

dx/dt = c1 / (c2 + c3*x*t)
Do you know c1, c2, c3 and x(0)?

Does anyone have any input on wether this problem can be approximated?
If what you want is a numerical solution, as your title indicates, then it is trivial. What software to you have access to and know how to use (Matlab, Mathematica, C compiler, ...) ?

Oh I'm sorry for leaving that out. I do know the values of c1,c2,c3. These are a string of constants I thought I would leave out for simplicity.

The equation again is, dx/dt = c1 / (c2 + c3*x(t)*t) initial value is x(0) = 0.

I have access to Matlab, Mathematica and a C compiler. My preference is Matlab, C, then Mathematica.

Thank you
