## Thinking Mathematically (6th Edition)

Consider the proportion relation between the number of tagged and the number of netted bass. This forms the proportion relation as, $\frac{p}{108}=\frac{50}{27}$ Here, $p$is the total number of bass in the lake. Solve the above equation. \begin{align} & p=\frac{50\times 108}{27} \\ & =200 \end{align} Thus, this shows that the total number of bass in the lake is 200.
