    Post suppose that x(t) is particular solution...

    guys how do i solve this.
    Suppose that x(t) is the particular solution to the following initial value problem..

    dx/dt = x(x-2)(x+2)^2 , x(0) = 5.
    Then lim as t--> +infinite x(t) = ?

    It is an autonomous DE and the initial value is over the constant solution x=2, so dx/dt will be positive => the limit is plus infinity.
