Of the 50 finish that Alan caught from the lake 14 were trout the estimated population of the lake is 7500 fish about how many trout would you expect to be in the lake
In the example given, we see there are 14 trout out of 50 fish. This can be written as 14/50. You then make the bottom number equal 7500, and multiply the top number by the same amount to get the answer. In this case, 7500 ÷ 50 = 150. So then we just do 14 × 150 = 700, and 700 is your answer. Hope this helped!
14/50 are trout times by 2/2 28/100 are trout so 7500 times 28/100=75 times 28=2100 estimate 2100 fish
