Homework Help: Population curve and calculations

  1. Feb 13, 2010 #1
    Suppose rabbit populations grow exponentially with a growth rate of 20% per year. If P(t) is the population at any time t and 1000 is the initial (t=0) population of rabbits, what is the population of rabbits in 10 years?
    Use the DE model: P ' = kP with k = .1 and P(0) = 1000.

    Plz help me
