A population is growing logistically
The question:

A population is growing logistically, and its graph has an inflection point when the time is 5 years and the population level is 339. What is the carrying capacity?

(How do I approach this problem?)

i think we need more info than this to provide an equation

logistic population growth is in the form of

$
N(t) = \frac{N_0P}{N_0 + (P - N_0)e^{kt}}
$

does this look familiar??
