vertical motion, H = -16t2 + vt + h, where H is the height of an object after t seconds,
v is the initial velocity, and h is the initial height. (Hint: Since the object is thrown

Designing a Survey
Identify each sample, and suggest a population from which it was selected.
Then classify the type of data collection used.
1. LANDSCAPING A homeowner is concerned about the quality of the topsoil in her back
yard. The back yard is divided into 5 equal sections, and then a 1-inch plug of topsoil is
randomly removed from each of the 5 sections. The soil is taken to a nursery and
analyzed for mineral content.
2. HEALTH A hospital’s administration is interested in opening a gym on the premises for
all its employees. They ask each member of the night-shift emergency room staff if he or
she would use the gym, and if so, what hours the employee would prefer to use it.
3. POLITICS A senator wants to know her approval rating among the constituents in her
state. She sends questionnaires to the households of 1000 registered voters.
Identify each sample as biased or unbiased. Explain your reasoning.

4. MANUFACTURING A company that produces motherboards for computers randomly
selects 25 boxed motherboards out of a shipment of 1500, and then tests each selected
motherboard to see that it meets specifications.
5. GOVERNMENT The first 100 people entering a county park on Thursday are asked
their opinions on a proposed county ordinance that would allow dogs in county parks to
go unleashed in certain designated areas.
Identify the sample and suggest a population from which it was selected.
Then classify the sample as simple, stratified, or systematic. Explain your reasoning.
6. MUSIC To determine the music preferences of their customers, the owners of a music
store randomly choose 10 customers to participate in an in-store interview in which they
listen to new CDs from artists in all music categories.
7. LIBRARIES A community library asks every tenth patron who enters the library to
name the type or genre of book he or she is most likely to borrow. They conduct the

Designing a Survey
Identify each sample, suggest a population from which it was selected. Then
classify the type of data collection used.
1. GOVERNMENT At a town council meeting, the chair asks 5 citizens attending for their
opinions on whether to approve rezoning for a residential area.
2. BOTANY To determine the extent of leaf blight in the maple trees at a nature preserve,
a botanist divides the reserve into 10 sections, randomly selects a 200-foot by 200-foot
square in the section, and then examines all the maple trees in the section.
3. FINANCES To determine the popularity of online banking in the United States, a
polling company sends a mail-in survey to 5000 adults to see if they bank online, and if
they do, how many times they bank online each month.
Identify each sample as biased or unbiased. Explain your reasoning.
4. SHOES A shoe manufacturer wants to check the quality of its shoes. Every twenty
minutes, 20 pairs of shoes are pulled off the assembly line for a quality
inspection.
For Question 6, identify the sample, and suggest a population from which it
was selected. Then classify the sample as simple, stratified, or systematic. Explain
