Sale of eggs that are contaminated with salmonella can cause food poisoning in consumers. A large egg producer takes an SRS of $200$ eggs from all the eggs shipped in one day. The laboratory reports that$9$of these eggs had salmonella contamination. Unknown to the producer, $0.1%$ (one-tenth of 1%) of all eggs shipped had salmonella. Identify the population, the parameter, the sample, and the statistic.

Sample=$200$

Perimeter=$0.001$

proportion of eggs in the sample=$0.045$

See the step by step solution

Step 1: Given information

Given in the question that, Sale of eggs that are contaminated with salmonella can cause food poisoning in consumers. A large egg producer takes an SRS of$200$ eggs from all the eggs shipped in one day. The laboratory reports that$9$ of these eggs had salmonella contamination. Unknown to the producer, 0.1% (one-tenth of$1%$) of all eggs shipped had salmonella.

Step 2: Explanation

Rotten one Sale that is polluted with salmonella can generate food contamination in customers. A huge egg maker takes an SRS of $200$ eggs from all the eggs carted in one day. The research facility says that $9$ of these eggs had salmonella defilement. Unrecognized to the maker,$0.1%$ (one-tenth of $1%$ ) of all transported had salmonella.

The individuals that are studied are considered as the population. Here, the population is all the eggs per day. The sample is the subpart of the population that is studied to get knowledge about the population. Here, $200$ eggs are sampled.

The parameter is the measurement of the actual population. Here, the proportion of eggs that have been shipped is the parameter which is $0.001$ in this case.

The statistic is the measurement of the sample. Here, the ratio of eggs in the sample that has been shipped is the parameter which $9/200=0.045$ in this case
