The results you got were (I hope):

Solve[(malthus /. t -> 2010) == 310383948., k]

Inverse Function Warning

K-value

The warning message doesn't sound too bad. It doesn't say that the solution we found is wrong, it simply says that there may be other solutions that it couldn't find. Let's press ahead with the solution we did find.

Let's go see how to plug the value of k we just found into our earlier solution, malthus...
