Find the range of $1$, $9$, $5$, $-7$, $2$, $6$, $1$, $-6$, $9$.

## Solution

The range of data is the difference between the largest and the smallest values in a data set.

So, sort the values.

The sorted values are $-7$, $-6$, $1$, $1$, $2$, $5$, $6$, $9$, $9$.

The largest value is $9$ and the smallest is $-7$.

Thus, the range is $9 - \left(-7\right) = 16$.

The range is $16$A.
