trying to decide between parameter and statistic for the 2 questions below. I think it is statistic for both but not sure.
1. A local newspaper conducted a survey last week. Of the 2300 subscribers, 1276 responded. Based on the survey, the editor concludes that 95% of the newspaper's subscribers will renew their subscription
2. Each senior at Jackson County High School completes a survey. The principal concludes that 83% of the students at Jackson County High School plan to attend a college or university after graduating high school.
Parameter uses all the subjects in a category, while a statistic only uses a portion.
Use that information to re-evaluate your answers.
