Hi, I was given this address by a colleague, who said you could quickly
answer what I think is a very simple question.  After I evaluate the
following in mathematica,

DSolve[{P'[t]==0.031P[t], P[0]==5.3}, P[t],t]

I get a result which is essentially: {{P[t] -> 5.3 E ^(0.031t)}}
inside two sets of curly brackets.

I would now like to compute P[10], P[100], etc.  Is there a reasonable
way to do this?  Thanks, Alice Dean
