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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0He 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'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
