and there are 8 salmon in the pond. What is the probability that a randomly chosen fish is a salmon,

given that it is a male?

I think they are just asking about salmon and trying to confuse me with adding more to the question.

There are 8 salmon. My answer is 8/30 or 4/15

- math: is this done correctly -
