These are equations, Calculus-style. From modeling real-world phenomenon, from the path of a rocket to the cooling of a physical object, Differential Equations are all around us.

Given the logistic differential equation \[ \frac{dP}{dt} = 3 P \left( 1 - \frac{P}{600}\right), \] and \(P(0)=P_{0} = 17,\) what time \(t\) satisfies \(P(t)=100?\)
