I know that this has nothing to do with computers, but really could do with some help.I have an assignment in tomorrow and want to check a question:the spread of a disease in a large population can be modelled by the equation:If N(t) = 2e0.6t (t>0) ---- And N(t) = 1000At the end of which day after the start of the epidemic at t=0 is it predicted that 1000 people would have contracted the disease.I get the answer 274.40 days - is this right?
I don't think you will get many responses to that one....:-)

but my partner is a Maths Teacher and she may well be able to help (though Stats is her nightmare!)I'll let you know as soon as I can.Sorry, only just seen this and it may be too late for you :( But at least you'll know if you were right :)
e to power 0.6t=500Take log natural both sides...(calc symbol ln)0.6t = ln 500t= 10.36 to 4sfNow read original Q to check form of answer needed.
I think the answer is about 16.6 days. Any advance on that?
If it helps, I agree with Wilhem. Pleasant change from the usual work, although I did need Excel for the log calculations. Seem to have lost that log table book we all used to have at school!
It will cheer me up if someone will read fully Polomans' original question and give the required answer.
...and I bet you had jumpers for goal posts, too (like me ;))
