Example 5.6.8



 A species undergoes logistic growth, governed by the formula developed in Example 5.6.7. Observation yields the following three data points.  $[\begin{array}{cc}\mathrm{Time in years}& \mathrm{Population Size}\\ 1& 1300\\ 3& 1870\\ 4& 2070\end{array}]$   Determine the carrying capacity $c$, the initial population ${y}_{0}$, and the rate constant $k$, if it is known that $k>0$.
