- Sample[ <List L>, <Size n> ]
- Returns list of
*n*randomly chosen elements of*L*; elements can be chosen several times. **Example:**`Sample[{1, 2, 3, 4, 5}, 5]`

yields for example*{1, 2, 1, 5, 4}*.

- Sample[ <List L>, <Size n>, <Boolean for replacement> ]
- Returns list of
*n*randomly chosen elements of*L*. Elements can be chosen several 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}*.

## CAS Syntax

- Sample[ <List L>, <Size n> ]
- Returns list of
*n*randomly chosen elements of*L*; elements can be chosen several times. **Example:**`Sample[{-5, 2, a, 7, c}, 3]`

yields for example*{a, 7, -5}*.

- Sample[ <List L>, <Size n>, <Boolean for replacement> ]
- Returns list of
*n*randomly chosen elements of*L*. Elements can be chosen several times if and only if the last parameter is true. **Example:**The list can include lists as well: Let*List1*be*{1, 2, 3}*.`Sample[{List1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8}, 3, false]`

yields for example*{6, {1, 2, 3}, 4}*.
