A farmer is using a random sample to predict the number of broken eggs in a shipment of 3,000 eggs. Using a calculator, the farmer generates the following random numbers. The numbers 1-250 represent broken eggs.
477, 2116, 1044, 81, 619, 755, 2704, 900, 238, 1672, 187, 1509.
Based on this sample, how many broken eggs might the farmer expect?

  1. From these numbers it seems that 3/12 would be broken so that is 1/4 or 25%.

    Multiply 3000 times .25 to find out how many might be broken.
