There is a population of 30 elk. 6 elk are captured, tagged and then released into the wild. Then later 5 elk are captured, what is the probability that k elk are tagged?

## Homework Equations

p=6/30 = 1/5P = [itex]\stackrel{n}{k}[/itex] * p

^{k}* (1-p)

^{k}

[itex]\stackrel{n}{k}[/itex] is n choose k

## The Attempt at a Solution

plug in the values.
