    Two species x, y compete for the same limited food supply according to the model
    x'=3x-2x^2-2xy y'=4y-3y^2-2xy
    Find and classify the equilibrium points.

    Do you have any idea at all what an "equilibrium point" is? Do you know how to find the Jacobian for this system? If you don't, look them up- you will need to know that!
