The following question consider the Gompertz equation, a modification for logistic growth, which is often used for modeling cancer growth, specifically the number of tumor cells. [T] The Gompertz equation has been used to model tumor growth in the human body. Starting from one tumor cell on day 1 and assuming \(α=0.1\) and a carrying capacity of 10 million cells, how long does it take to reach “detection” stage at 5 million cells?

The Gompertz model has been used to model population growth
\(\displaystyle{\frac{{{\left.{d}{y}\right.}}}{{{\left.{d}{t}\right.}}}}={r}{y}{\ln{{\left({\frac{{{K}}}{{{y}}}}\right)}}}\)
where \(\displaystyle{r}={0.71}\) per year, \(\displaystyle{K}={46},{300}\) kg, \(\displaystyle{\frac{{{y}_{{0}}}}{{{K}}}}={0.38},{y}{\left({0}\right)}={y}_{{0}}\)
Use the Gompertz model to find the predictet value of y(5).
