Homework Help: Calculus I, differentiation

Posted by Brian on Sunday, February 24, 2013 at 10:14pm.

The number, N, of people who have heard a rumor spread by mass media by time, t, is given by N(t)=a(1−e−kt). There are 6 million people in the population, who hear the rumor eventually. If 5% of them heard it on the first day, find the percentage of the population who have heard the rumor after 5 days.

I found N'(t)=(ae^-(bx))+axe^-(bx)
and i figure a=6M*.05=300000, but i cannot find the %population after 5 days. any help would be awesome, Thanks in advance!
