1 AnswerLaw & Ethics8 years ago### simplifing an equation?

I need to simplify (4xy)((3/2)x)/(6x^2y)

that is.. 4xy times 3/2 x divide by 6 x sq y

I've worked it out, but just want to see what other people come up with and how they worked it out to make sure i'm doing it right

4 AnswersMathematics9 years ago### Another one on logistics equations?

In ecology, the logistic equation is often written in the form:

dN/dt = rN (1 – N/K),

where N = N(t) stands for the size of the population at time t, the constants r and K stand for the intrinsic growth rate and the carrying capacity of the species, respectively.

If a pond on a fish farm has a carrying capacity of 1000 fish and an intrinsic growth rate of 0.3 (when time is measured in months), and if the pond was originally stocked with 100 fish.

(a) Set up a logistic equation for the fish population N (t) in the pond, with t measured in months.

(b) Find the size of the population when t = 100

(c) Can the population reach 1200 at any future time?

1 AnswerMathematics10 years ago### Question on Logistic Equations?

A rabbit population satisfies the logistic equation:

dy/dt = 2 x 10^-7 y (10^6 – y)

where t is the time measured in months. The population is suddenly reduced to 20% of its steady state size by myxamatosis. If the myxamatosis then has no further effect, how large is the population 6 months later? How long will it take for the population to build up again to 90% of its steady state size?

1 AnswerMathematics10 years ago### Differential equations?

I've already worked out the following, just need to check I'm doing it right...

Use seperation of variables to solve the following differential equations:

(a) dy/dx = (5-x) / y^2

(b) y^1 = y^2 - (e^3t)(y^2) , y(0) = 1

(c) y^1 + y = 1, y(0) = 2
