The boys and girls selected will be proportional to the relative
size of the stratum. Therefore 10 girls and 11 boys will be
selected using simple random sampling.
An advantage is the delegation is representative of the student
population
Quota sampling. An advantage is that it is easier to carry out.

level, there is insufficient evidence to justify that the mass
of the gold coins produced by the manufacturer is not less

It means that there is a 0.05 probability of wrongly
concluding that the mean mass of the gold coin is less
