Help with finding differential equation constants Watch

1. I tried working it out using simultaneous eq but im getting k as a weird -73.57 and i know i prob messed my e log rules somewhere.

2. When t=1, N=1200

When t=2, N=1800

Sub those in, try solving simultaneously
3. I did do that but i dont know if my answer is correct. Therefore wanted some workings from the community to check against. Ill try to upload my workings for this soon.

4. Attachment 535989535993Hi,
I tried the question and got:
K= ln(19/8)
B= 9025
N= 4700 (to nearest 100 where t=6)
I solved the equations simultaneously.
Hope this helps

5. Wow thank you sooo much i was struggling with that for some time. I was using simultaneously as well but did not think of it this way.
