$\frac{dy}{dt}=-3y+2$
We must write a differential equation of the form $\frac{dy}{dt}=ay+b$ such that all solutions approach $y=\frac{2}{3}$ as $t\rightarrow\infty$. Solution: We want to have the solution function to have slope $0$ when $y=\frac{2}{3}$. Thus, $0=a(\frac{2}{3})+b$. So, $\frac{b}{a}=-\frac{2}{3}$. Hence, one such equation satisfying this criteria is $\frac{dy}{dt}=-3y+2$. This may be rewritten $y'=2-3y$.
