**Steve**, Saturday, January 5, 2013 at 12:26amR = 3√t cos(t/3)

R' = 3/2√t cos(t/3) - √t sin(t/3)

R' = 0 when

3/2√t cos(t/3) = √t sin(t/3)

3cos(t/3) = 2t sin(t/3)

3/2 cot(t/3) = t

t = 1.96, 9.88, 19.08

not sure how there are 500 flies at t=0. That doesn't fit R(t). Anyway, if that can be fixed, just plug in those values for t to get what you need.

**Steve**, Saturday, January 5, 2013 at 5:36amoops. yes. I misread the problem. Didn't see the "rate of change" phrase.

**Steve**, Saturday, January 5, 2013 at 3:27pmBeats me. It doesn't use standard elementary functions. Are you studying numerical methods?
