    I suppose I wasn't clear. I've completed the first part of the question finding the differential equation connecting x and t; the equation being dx/dt=c(a +bsincx - y). However I don't know where to start with the second part of the question, showing what x is equal to.

    I would like some guidance as to how complete/start working out the part of the question, "show that , after some time, x is approximately equal to..." please.

    It's going to depend on what you got for the first part of the question - what was that?

    the equation I got relating x and t was dx/dt=c(a +bsincx - y)

    the equation I got relating x and t was dx/dt=c(a +bsincx - y)
    I make it:

    \displaystyle \frac{dx}{dt}=c(a+b\sin (ct)-x)

    Rearranging to:

    \displaystyle \frac{dx}{dt}+cx= ac+bc\sin (ct)

    So we need to start by getting a solution to that d.e.

    For large values of t, the complementary function will tend to zero, and we're left with the particular integral which should tend to the desired function, if not actually being that.
