  4. Find an equation of the curve that has a slope of at the point (x, y) and passes through the point (0, 4).
  5. The population in a city was approximately 750,000 in 1980, and grew at a rate of 3% per year. If the population growth followed an exponential growth model, find the city's population in the year 2002.
  6. Find a solution of the differential equation 4ey = y' – 3xe y and y(0) = 0.

  8. The velocity function of a moving particle is given as v(t) = 2 – 6et, t = 0 and t is measured in seconds. Find the total distance traveled by the particle during the first 10 seconds.
  9. Draw a slope field for the differential equation = xy.
  10. A rumor spreads through an office of fifty people at a model by On day zero, one person knows the rumor. Find the model for the population at time t, and use it to predict when more than half the people in the office will have heard the rumor.
  11. A college dormitory that houses 200 students experiences an outbreak of influenza. The illness is recognized when two students are diagnosed on the same day. The residents are quarantined to restrict the infection to this one building. On the fifth day of the outbreak, 12 students are ill. Use a logistic model to describe the course of infection and predict the number of infected students on day 10.
