It's saying that you need to verify that the given equation satisfies the D.E including the initial conditions.

1. Differentiate and show it's x(1-x).

2. Show that when t=0, x=0.5.

and im stressing can someone give me a worked solution thanks
No.
3. its the 1-x part that doesnt make sense to me ive never understood the 4th stage of the mark scheme

What do you get when you differentiate the expression given?

What is 1-x?

5. i get the 1 - 1/1+e^-t but then when it goes on to say 1+e^-t - 1 on the numerator i dont get
