Final Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

To find the total number of fur seal A:

Late august----------- 1000 observed : 281 tagged 
Early august--------- p whole population : 4446 tagged 

p/4446 = 1000/281

p=4446*(1000/281)

then

p=15,822.


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
