First, give the values 'of all equilibria. Second, run 3 steps of the cobweb routine (by hand) starting from initial values -2, 0, and 2. From this, identify which equilibrium are stable and unstable. If you need to run the cobweb routine on more initial data points, do‘so, then determine which equilibria are stable or unstable 2 —2 -1.5 -‘l 45.5 0 0.5 1 3.5 2 5%1ZZr/lam ﬁfty" A; /S 5%féé’ ”Wm/C 55:415— ﬂgar' §./ /5' UUSTAﬁéé N/WWJ/C’ you); ﬂfaf’.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
