posted by Ernie on .
to determine the size pf a parks moose population, caturalists catch 72 moose, tag them, and then set them free. months later 65 moose are caught, of which 15 have tags. Estimate the size of the moose population.
15/65 had tags = 0.23 or about 23%
If the fraction tagged is same in the herd then 0.23*what number = 72
what number = ?
