**Describe the term random number table.**

A table of digits is a random number table.

The numbers 1, 2, 3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0 were used as the starting point for the random procedure that selected the digit for each location in the table.

Each digit had an equal chance of being selected.

**Part a:** random number table;

Let each of five trials figures be represented by a number from 0 to 4.

Pick digits at random from a table of numbers, ignoring those that are bigger than 4.

Determine how many digits (0–4) from the table—including repeats—are required to get all five numbers—one try, like this.

**Part b:** labeling the random number.
