- Sample[ <List L>, <Size n> ]
- Returns list of
*n*randomly chosen elements of*L*; elements can be chosen more times. - Sample[ <List L>, <Size n>, <Boolean for replacement> ]
- Returns list of
*n*randomly chosen elements of*L*. Elements can be chosen more times if and only if the last parameter is true.

## CAS Syntax

- Sample[ <List L>, <Size n> ]
- Returns list of
*n*randomly chosen elements of*L*; elements can be chosen more times. - Sample[ <List L>, <Size n>, <Boolean for replacement> ]
- Returns list of
*n*randomly chosen elements of*L*. Elements can be chosen more times if and only if the last parameter is true.

**Example:**

`Sample[{1, 2, 3, 4, 5}, 5, true]`

yields for example *{2,3,3,4,5}*.
