#### Understanding

A sampling distribution is the collection of sample statistics from all possible samples of a given size from a population.

### What to look for

When comparing simulated sampling distributions, be sure the sample size is the same unless the file has been set to proportions rather than counts.### Sample Assessment

Would you rather go to a small hospital where a sample of 10 operations showed that 8 of them were successful or to a large hospital where on average 75% of the operations are successful? Give a reason for your answer.

Response:

The large one because a small sample can have a lot of variability and it did not say it was random. When something happens “On average” there will be some variability but the variability will be close to the 75%.
