A polling organization took a random sample of 3,000 middle school students to determine how many have a dog.

Suppose that 57% of all middle school students have a dog. If the total population of middle school students is 8 million, is the 10% condition met? Justify your answer. 

A.No, 0.10(8,000,000) = 800,000 students, which is more than the sample.

B.No, 10(8,000,000) = 80,000,000 students, which is more than the sample.

C.Yes, 10(3,000) = 30,000 students, which is less than the total population.

D. There is not enough information to determine whether the 10% condition has been met
