A company with N = 5000 workers would like to gauge the share (π) of workers who are willing to strike. Let Xi :

"The number of workers willing to strike per i-th worker". Denote π the probability that worker i is willing to strike. Let X = Pn i=1 Xi : " The number of workers willing to strike in a simple random sample of size n."

Out of n = 25 interviewed workers only the first 6 and the last 2 are willing to strike. 8.

Compute the estimates ϑˆ 1, ϑˆ 2 and ϑˆ 3. 9.

Which of the three estimates is the best one? Explain your answer.

What simple prediction about the total number of workers willing to strike would you make?
