                www.imdb.com
• Go to www.imdb.com and select IMDb Top 250. (To
  find this link, scroll down and look for User’s Favorites
  in the sidebar on the left.) This list ranks the top 250
  movies as voted by regular users of the Internet Movie
  Database (IMDb).
• (Note: These are listed by ranking, not by number of
  voters. The voters did not vote for a favorite movie;
  rather, they ranked the movies on a scale of 0–10).
• You will compute statistics on the number of voters
  who provided input on the movies, without actually
  using 250 pieces of data in your calculation. (If you
  wish, choose the IMDb Bottom 100 instead.)

• Use your calculator or a random number table
  or www.random.org to select 10 of the 250
  movies.

  on the list, and the number of voters who
  ranked it.
