Random Number Sample

Explanation:
Yes, I think it can be rendered as number sample, but I believe you need to add "Random" to signify 抽

Actually, 抽 signifies sample .

Number sample on it's own should be fine then.

Numerals, as an adjective means, Of, relating to, or representing numbers. As a noun, it means a word, letter, symbol, or figure.

Now, number as a noun can refer to a numeral or group of numerals, the sum, total, count, or aggregate of a collection of units, or the like.

Perhaps you can use 'sampling number'.
Numerals makes me think of Roman numerals, chiefly characters that represent numbers.
I think numeral is incorrect.
Opinions?
