Given: \(5+1\times10\) When an expression contains both a sum and product without any brackets, then we always neet to perform the product before performing the sum. This is thus equivalent with placing brackets about the product.
\(=5+(1\times10)\)
Let us evaluate the product using that the product of 1 and 10 is 10.
\(=5+10\)
Next, we evaluate the sum using that the sum of 5 and 10 is 15:
\(=15\)
Thus the answer to the equation is 15.

\(\displaystyle{d}\frac{{P}}{{\left.{d}{t}\right.}}={k}{P}{\left({1}-\frac{{P}}{{M}}\right)}{\left({1}-\frac{{m}}{{P}}\right)}{)}\)
\(\frac{dP}{dt} = kP(1-\frac{P}{M})(1-\frac{m}{P})\)

Solve this differential equation using separation of variables. Only separate the equations and integration (not solving for P)
M= carrying capacity (maximum value)
m= threshold value (minimum value)
k= the proportionality constant
