Sample[ <List>, <Size> ]
Returns list of n randomly chosen elements of a list; elements can be chosen several times.

Sample[{1, 2, 3, 4, 5}, 5, true] yields for example list1 = {2, 3, 3, 4, 5}.


CAS Syntax

Sample[ <List>, <Size> ]
Returns list of n randomly chosen elements of a list; elements can be chosen several times.

Sample[{-5, 2, a, 7, c}, 3] yields for example {a, 7, -5}.


Sample[ <List>, <Size>, <With Replacement> ]
Returns list of n randomly chosen elements of a list. 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}.
