    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?

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

    logistic population growth is in the form of

     <br />
N(t) = \frac{N_0P}{N_0 + (P - N_0)e^{kt}}<br />

    does this look familiar??
