## Homework Statement

The growth of bacteria is proportional to the number present but is being reduced at a constant rate for experimentation. Find the equation for N

## Homework Equations

d(N)/dt = KN-R , N = number of bacteria, K = proportionality const., R = reduction rate.

## The Attempt at a Solution

Above was my guess to what the differential equation should look like...it's a separable equation. My question: Is the above formula the right formula based on my understanding of the question? With that equation I can't seem to solve it.
