t is thought that there are 1100 moose in the Yellowstone Park moose population. Last year 50 moose were captured and tagged. Six months later 200 moose are captured. Define the RV, X, to be the number of tagged moose in the group of 200 most recently captured moose. We will assume that all moose are still living and that the population total has not changed. What is the probability that 25 of the most recently captured moose are tagged?
