r(t)=dr/dt=0.05e^.02t (200-t)

r(0)=1000

using integral calculas i need to show that r(t)=2.5e^.02t (250-t)+375

How is this found???

Your question is a little unreadable.

But I could see that you need to solve a differential equation with initial condition. - Nov 1st 2007, 02:42 AMsoftdrink_jris this a little easier to understand???
If the rate of growth of the number of wasps at time t days is given by -

r(t)=dr/dt=0.05e^.02t (200-t), r(0)=1000

show that the number of reproductive wasp r(t) at time t equals -

2.5e^.02t (250-t)+375
