5.0 for Mac OS X (November 19, 2003)

The version that I am running fails to solve for solution without some help

soln = DSolve[{n'[t]==k*n[t]}, n[t],t][[1]]

{n[t] -> E^(k*t)*C[1]}

solution = soln /.Solve[(n[t] /.soln /. t->1) == 500, C[1]]

{{n[t] -> 500*E^(k*t - k)}}


{n[t] -> 500*E^(k*t - k)}


n[t] -> 500*E^(k*t - k)


500*E^(k*t - k)

population[t_] = solution[[1,1,2]];

For example,
solution=DSolve[{n'[t]==kn[t], n[1]=500}, n[t],t]


I gather that the first item of the solution[[1,1,2]] is for the first and
only curly item:{n't[t]==kn[t],n[1]=500}.

I assume the second item of solution[[1,1,2] is the first subitem of the
first curly bracket. The third item of solution [[1,1,2]] which is two
suppose to be for 2nd item of the first curly brackets. But it appears to be

Is there a way for me to see the contents visibly of the solution[[1,1,2]]
each item at a time.
