Guys, could you please help me with this problem? I'm a bit lost.
Consider a population that begins growing exponentially at a rate of 5% per year and then follows a logistic growth pattern. If the carrying capacity is 100 million, find the actual growth rate when the population is 10 million, 50 million and 90 million.
Thank you..
