Expert Answer

Step 1

According to the given information, logistic growth can be defined as the growth like S shape graph that is when the population is less that growth rate is high and when the population is more the growth rate is less.

The logistic growth equation can be given as:

Step 2

Now, for part (a)

Carrying capacity (A) = 2300

Constant (k) = 0.6 years

Initial population = 575

Now, put it in the above equation to get the value of P:
