2) (16 points) A virus infects a population of 10000 individuals as follows. Let x ( t ) be the number of infected, which we model as a differentiable function. The rate at which x is increasing is proportional to the product of the number of infected and the number of uninfected. Initially 50 are infected and the rate when x = 250 is 25 per month. Write the differential equation for x ( t ). Find the equilibrium solutions and determine their stability. You are not asked to solve the equation. 2
