# Question Video: Determining If a Given Sample Is a Simple Random Sample Mathematics • First Year of Preparatory School

Suppose your school has 500 students and you need to conduct a short survey on the quality of the food served in the cafeteria. You decide that a sample of 10 students would be sufficient for your purposes. So, you choose 10 students by assigning them each a number and then using the random button on your calculator to choose 10 students randomly out of the 500 and conduct the survey on them. Is that considered a simple random sample?
