Step by Step Solution

Step 1: Concept Introduction

The sample is a portion of the population that is chosen and analyzed in order to derive conclusions about the entire population of interest in statistics.

Step 2: Explanation

According to the rule of sample size, a sample must be a maximum of 10% of the population size. As a result, in this case, if the sample size is 150 students and the population consists solely of students from one school, the sample of 150 students is sufficient.

Step 3: Final answer

Hence, the sample size would be large enough if the population is the students in the school.
