Random Sample

Random Sample
A selection that is chosen randomly (purely by chance, with no predictability)


Example: if you wanted to take a random sample of water from a river, you could have a map of the river and choose a spot blindfolded then work out how to get there!

To be really random, you should also choose a date, time and depth randomly, too.
