Suppose the growth-rate parameter k=.3 and the carrying capacity N=2500. Suppose P(0)=2500.

(a) If 100 fish are harvested each year, what does the model predict for the long-term behavior of the fish population?

(b) What if one-third of the fish are harvested?

------------------------------------

so the logistic equation is dp/dt=.3(1-P/2500)*P

and for (a) you subtract 100

and for (b) you subtract P/3.

I can kinda guess at the answers but i'm not sure how to show my work...
