# The following problems deal with the Holling type I, II, and III equations.

These equations describe the ecological event of growth of a predator population given the amount of prey available for consumption.

The Holling type I equation is described by f(x)=ax, where x is the amount of prey available and a&gt;0 is the rate at which the predator meets the prey for consumption.

a. Graph the Holling type I equation, given a=0.5.
b. Determine the first derivative of the Holling type I equation and explain physically what the derivative implies.
c. Determine the second derivative of the Holling type I equation and explain physically what the derivative implies.
d. Using the interpretations from b. and c. explain why the Holling type I equation may not be realistic.
