    [Highschool math] SIR Model (simulating diff-EQ w/ turtle graphics using JSXGraph)

    Hello,

    I'm trying to understand how to model an infectious disease, I was just wondering how they got this value on this page

    How did they get the I(0)=1.27E-6 value?

    Thank you!

    I(0) is defined as the fraction that is infected at time 0. You are given that 10 people of 7.9 million are initially infected. What fraction is that?
