Questions 9 and 10 use the following model for a battle between two armies,
$X$ and
$Y$. The
model assumes that the rate at which soldiers in one army are put out of action
(killed or wounded) is proportional to the number of soldiers in the opposing army.
For one particular battle, the proposed model is
$$\frac{dX}{dt}=-0.04Y;\phantom{\rule{2em}{0ex}}\frac{dY}{dt}=-0.01X$$

where $X\left(t\right)$ and $Y\left(t\right)$ are the numbers of soldiers still fighting in armies $X$ and $Y$, respectively, $t$ days after the battle starts. The initial strength of army $X$ was 54 000, and that of army $Y$ was 21 500. If army $Y$ fought without surrendering until all its soldiers were killed how long did the battle last? (Give your answer rounded up to the nearest day.)

The particular solution for $Y$
is $Y=24250{e}^{-0.02t}-2750{e}^{0.02t}$.
Solving $Y=0$
gives $t=55$.
