. As a part of their customer-service program, United Airlines wanted to select 10 passengers from today's 9 A.M. Chicago-Tampa flight to be interviewed regarding airport facilities, service, and amenities in the waiting area. Each passenger was given a number on check in, starting with 001 and ending with 250.
a. Describe how you would take a systematic sample of 10 passengers.
b. Describe how you would take a cluster sample of 10 passengers.
c. Describe how you would take a random sample of 10 passengers.
d. Which of the 3 sampling methods would yield the best sample for this application?
Find the definitions of systematic, cluster, and random sampling. One hint: for random sampling, a random number table can be used to choose samples.
