(b) A simple model to account for the way in which two different animal species sometimes interact is the predator-prey model. If u(t) is the number of individuals in the predator species and v(t) the number of individuals in the prey species, then under suitable simplifying assumptions, the model is given by





= 0.25u — 0.01uv, u(0) = 80

= 0.01uv — v, v(0) = 30.

Use the fourth-order Runge-Kutta method with step-size h = 1 to approximate the solution at t = 1. [10 marks]
