Differential equation question; if dp/dt = PkP where P is population of rabbits. In a certain year the population is too high and they decide to shoot "S" rabbits each year. Therefore dp/dt = PkP  S. Find in terms P and k the maximum amount of rabbits that can be shot each year to make the population stable.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[dp/p=(1k)dt\] > \[\ln p=(1k)t + c\] equation of population before shooting after shooting ln p=(1ks)t + k ...differentiate it, get expression of s and equate it to zero to get the answer
