Hi there! I am trying to write a project to model the spread of rumours and have reached a step involving proving an integration in a differential. Could anyone help to give a value for S? dS/dt=kS(MS) where k and M are constants Thanks in advance!

$\dfrac{dS}{S(MS)} = k \, dt$ partial fraction decomposition ... $\displaystyle \int \bigg[\dfrac{1}{S} + \dfrac{1}{MS}\bigg] \, dS = \int kM \, dt$ Solve for $S$ from this step? $S(t)$ will be a logistic function ...
