3. A North Carolina agricultural supply company is hoping to expand its services to three counties in rural Virginia. According to its research, there is a total of approximately 1,200 farms in these three counties. The company sends out surveys to a sample of 200 randomly selected farmers in the counties and finds that 120 are not satisfied with their current supply company.

5. Sometimes, companies will buy stock in businesses owned by one or more of their competitors in order to gain some control over the competing companies. Suppose Company X buys stock in two of its competitors. The first competitor is a small regional company. Five hundred shares of its stock cost \$25,000 less than half as much as 500 shares of the other competitor, which is a large national company. Together, Company X pays \$155,000 for all the stock.
