### Description

Functions and examples for Chapter 1, Introduction to Biostatistics.

### Usage

sampleRow(x, size, replace = FALSE, prob = NULL)


### Arguments

 x size positive integer scalar, number of rows to be selected replace logical scalar, whether sampling should be with replacement (default FALSE) prob numeric vector of probability weights for each row of input x being sampled. Default NULL indicates simple random sampling

### Value

Function sampleRow returns a data.frame, a simple random sample from the input.
