The probability that a randomly selected person in the United States is left-handed is about 0.14.
(a) Among the 28 students in Mr. Miller’s class, 8 are left-handed. Could this have happened by chance alone? Describe how you would use a random number table to simulate the proportion of left-handers in a class of 28 students if they were chosen randomly from a population that is 14% left-handed. Do not perform this simulation.




assign # 01-14 left hander and #15-28 right handers . Choose 28 2 digit #s from random digit table and count the 3# of left hander in group. Is this correct?
