and I want to put it in logistic form

rP_n(1 - P_n/E)

where r and E are positive parameters

Both examples I have are of the form (a - bP_n)P_n which means I get the 1 -, but now my logistic form is going to be 1 +, does this matter??

Apologies if this is the wrong forum but it seemed quite general.

Also sorry if this is a boneheaded question.
