In established forest fires, the proportion of the total area of the forest which has been destroyed is
denoted by x, and the rate of change of x with respect to time, t hours, is called the destruction rate

particular fire is initially noticed when one half of the forest is destroyed, and it is found that the
destruction rate at this time is such that, if it remained constant thereafter, the forest would be des
