Can anyone help me regarding the solution?Ecologists marked 60 fish in a little lake. A few days later a man caught 80 fish, of which five were marked. Estimate the number of fish in the lake. #2 20120419 00:50:51
Re: Can anyone help me regarding the solution?Hi; n = 960 so that is the population of the fish in the lake using the most likely probability or MLE( maximum likelihood estimator) In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4 20120419 01:08:40
