Use table D as a source of random number, take it two digits at a time, and

treat 00 as 50 and if the two digit number NN is >50 use NN-50, This you

have a sequence of random state numbers.

The first five such numbers are: 10, 48, 01, 50, 11. So select these states as your sample.

Now consult your notes and compute the mean number of electoral votes

for this sample.
