Answer

Step 1 of 1

Suppose that a population contains experiment units.

Use a random number generator to select a simple random sample of units from the population.

Since we are generating the random numbers, answers will vary.

Using Microsoft Excel we can generate 10 random numbers on the interval from

Hence the 10 numbers selected for the random sample are:
