    Solve dP/dt = 0.002P(1-P/800)

    Find the solution...

    dP/dt = 0.002P(1-P/800)

    P(0) = 50

    I usually do something like that...

    A/P = B/(1-P/800)

    I am not sure how to work it with what is under B. Can someone help?

    The DE is seperable. You should integrate with respect to P using partial fractions.
