Math Definitions - Letter P


Definition of Population

Definition of Population

A population is the group from which we take samples.

For example, if you randomly choose \(50\) people who are shopping at Haymarket on a particular day and ask them to complete a survey, the population is all of the people who are shopping at Haymarket on that day.


The aim of this dictionary is to provide definitions to common mathematical terms. Students learn a new math skill every week at school, sometimes just before they start a new skill, if they want to look at what a specific term means, this is where this dictionary will become handy and a go-to guide for a student.
