tanley wants to know how many students in his school enjoy watching talk shows on TV. He asks this question to all 24 students in his history class and finds that 55% of his classmates enjoy watching talk shows on TV. He claims that 55% of the school's student population would be expected to enjoy watching talk shows on TV. Is Stanley making a valid inference about his population?

    He is making a valid inference because he is Sampling, which is instead of taking the entire school and counting each individual person, he is taking a small sample and amplifying it to fit the entire school. It's a common technique most Scientists use to get the population density of an entire area without counting the absolute entire area

    It may not be exact, but it would be close

    No, it is not a valid inference because he asked all 24 students in his history class instead of taking a sample from his math class No, it is not a valid inference because his classmates do not make up a random sample of the students in the school Yes, it is a valid inference because his classmates make up a random sample of the students in the school Yes, it is a valid inference because he asked all 24 students in his history class

    I'm 89% sure, His classmates do make a random sample of students and it really would not differ if they were in his math class, I'm guessing at that grade level they would all be in the same classes, no matter what the time they are all in those classes and did not choose to enroll specifically in History, so yes, it is a random sample of students
