Calculus differential equation (not sure which type)
A population r(t) of rabbits (at time t) satisfies
dr/dt = kr (1 − (r/r∗)) − αfr (1)
where k > 0 is a constant representing the rabbit breeding rate, r∗ > 0 is the (constant)
maximum sustainable rabbit population size in the absence of predation, f > 0 is the
population of foxes, and α > 0 is the (constant) rate of predation of rabbits by foxes.
1. Suppose that the fox population, f, is constant. Solve the differential equation
(1), and determine
(a) the size of the rabbit population as t → ∞;
(b) the maximum predation rate α for which the rabbit population does not die
out as t → ∞;
(c) the value of α which maximises αfr (the total number of rabbits caught) as
t → ∞, and the corresponding rabbit population.

Hi there
I found a segment in one of my old Calculus textbooks that likely holds an explanation to your question. Please review it below, and let us know if it helps!

Hi, I attempted to solve this but I’m not sure it’s right. I’ve attached my workings so far, could you have a look? How would I find the size of the population as t tends to infinity?

this looks like Bernoulli's equation!
substitute a very large number into t to see what happens
