(1 point) To determine how to best inform a certain segment of the population about a given piece of information and to determine on any day what number of people will be informed about the new product? 2. State the Differential Equation Model. (1 point) Spread of Information via Mass Communication and Discrete. y(i+1) - y(i) = dt*k*(20000 - y(i)) spread of information via mass communication and continuous y(t + dt) - y(t) dt*k*(20000 - y(t)) spread of information via personal communication and discrete y(i+1) - y(i) = dt*c*y(i)*(20000 - y(i)) spread of information via personal communication and continuous y(t + dt) - y(t) dt*c*y(t)*(20000 - y(t)) 3. Describe the Numerical Method. (1 point) In this lesson we will use the Matlab command ode45 to solve our differential equation. This command is a robust implementation of a variable step size method and
