I have to find the explicit solution to this harvesting problem in a population model where dN/dt=rN(1N/K)H(N) such that H=qEN, subject to initial condition N(0)=N_0. Here N=N(t) and r,K,q, and E are positive constants. I also have to deduce the two limiting behaviors as t approaches infinity. So far I have broken down the equation to (1/N)dN/dt+(r/k)N=(rqE). Any hints on how to do the problem would be very much appreciated. I'm having trouble understanding what they mean by finding the explicit solution and deducing two limiting behaviors.
