In the article “Element Hunters” R. Dunn reports about the search for new undiscovered elements. Since 1940, scientists have been synthesizing elements one by one. The firstwas neptunium (Np), element number 93. There are, as of this writing, a total of 26 new synthetic elements. The following table provides their element numbers and symbols.

a. Suppose that you decide to take a simple random sample of eight of these new elements. Use Table I in Appendix A to obtain eight random numbers that you can use to specify your sample.

b. If you have access to a random-number generator, use it to solve part (a).
