Game wardens use experiments to help determine the number of fish in a lake. Suppose 80 fish are caught,tagged, and released back into the lake. Two weeks later 120 fish are caught, 3 of which are found to have tags. Using this information, estimate the number of fish in the lake.

3200 600 120 280
well if the first 80 caught were tagged and only 3 of that number were caught out of the 120 the second time... I don't know this for sure if it's a formula or anything, but logically I'd say that to estimate the total number of fishes in the lake, for every 120 fishes caught, there'll be 3 fishes that are tagged, distribute that over 80 tagged fishes and you have your estimated number of fishes. (80/3) * 120

So would it be the first one?
I'm not very good in math sorry
Like I said, I'm not sure myself, but year I'd go for the first one.
the answer is 3,200 because 120 times 80 = 9,600 divided by 3 equals 3,200
Let us keep it straight and simple. Use ratio : original caught / total = tagged caught (II time) / total caught (II time) 80 / x = 3 / 120 x = 80 * 120 / 3 x = 3200 So, A looks correct.
Yay! Thanks everyone!
