For example, if a question asks you which group is smaller, you might answer like this:
The smaller group was the 4th grade students. The table indicates
that this group had a sample population of N=20 whereas the 3rd grade
students had a sample population of n = 100. The 3rd grade group is 5
times larger than the 4th grade group.
