The main thing to recognize in this scenario is that brown and burned forest would have made it really difficult for bears with
white fur
to survive because they would stand out to any hunters in the area and easily be shot.

Other factors to note:
The fires and brown forest have no effect on bears with thin or thick fur, so their numbers should stay at 25
A correct answer will include any number where total amount of bears is 100 and
brown fur
bears are more common than
white fur
