If you wanted the sample to be a tenth of the population, you would select every tenth member of the population, starting with one chosen randomly form among the first ten in sequence. (tenth of the population??? I don't get that)

**one-tenth of the population >> ten per cent of the population >> one in ten of the population**

To get a 10% sample, you select one out of each ten people.

2.For Stratified Smpale:

A stratified sample has the same proportion of members from each stratum as the population does? (can someone reword this sentence for me please??)

**Within society, each stratum of that society contains a percentage of the total population [ie Top stratum = 10%; middle stratum= 65%; lowest stratum= 25%]. To obtain a stratified sample, the percentage of people selected from each sample must equal the percentage of that stratum.**

Please translate this from English to the understandable English.
