Consider the Lotka-Volterra predator-prey model defined by

where the populations *x*(*t*) (predators) and *y*(*t*) (prey) are measured in thousands. Suppose *x*(0) = 6 and *y*(0) = 6. Use a numerical solver to graph *x*(*t*) and *y*(*t*). Use the graphs to approximate the time *t >* 0 when the two populations are first equal. Use the graphs to approximate the period of each population.
