(i) State the reason why the following differential equation is not linear?
(1)
(ii) Convert the differential equation in (i) into linear form. (4)

(iii) Solve the following initial value problem:

(5)

Question#2 Marks 10

(i) Find the general solution of the following differential equation: (5)

(ii) Find the orthogonal trajectories of the general solution in (i). (5)

Question#3 Marks 10

(i) Construct a population dynamics model (exponential model) by considering the following assumptions:
 measures the population of a species at any time .
 is a differentiable, hence continuous, function of time .
 indicates the time rate of change of the population of a species.
 The rate of change of the population of a species is proportional to the existing population of a species.
 represents the proportionality constant.
(3)
(ii) Determine the solution of the model constructed in (i) subject to the condition ( is the initial population at ).
(3)
(iii) If after two years the population of a country has doubled, and after three years the population is 20,000, then estimate the number of people initially living in the country using the model constructed in (i).
