To count the number of endangered falcons in the local county, Fernando first tagged each of the 8 falcons he saw one day. Then, days later, he counted 11 falcons and noticed that only 3 were tagged. What is a good estimate of how many falcons exist in his county? Show how you know. Homework Help ✎

Set up a proportion with the information given in the problem.

$\frac{8}{x} = \frac{3}{11}$
