Our teacher handed out handfuls of m&ms to each student in class. We were divided into 4 groups of 5 each. We had to count the colors of each of our handfuls of m&ms. Would this be considered a random sample? why or why not? I know the definition of random sample but I don't really understand the concept as it applies in this example. Thanks...
