Mathematical Models and Numerical Methods: Population Models

These homework problems that I need help on are due in two days (Wednesday Morning, eastern standard time, so it's not really urgent), I would put on the urgent link but two days is not that urgent, I think. In the meantime I will attempt to work at them and compare my work with yours once you help me). Anyways here they are:

1) Solve the initial value problem: dx/dt = 1- x^(2), x(0)= 3

2) The world population in 1990 was 5,274.320M and in 2000 was 6,073.265M. Predict the world population in 2007 and 2050 by using the Unbounded Population Model. Is your answer greater, lesser, or equal to

the current world population posted on

U.S. and World Population Clocks - POPClocks (Solve w/o Maple)

3) the world population in 1980 was 4,447.068M, in 1990 was 5,274.320M

and in 2000 was 6,073.265M. Predict the world population in 2007 and

2050 by using the Bounded Population Model. Also, what is the limiting

population (carrying capacity) of the world? (Solve w/o Maple).

Those two equations you gave me for the two last problem are indeed correct based on the class notes I've taken. Right on!:D
