Range of a Data Set calculator

For the given set of observations, the calculator will find their range, with steps shown.

If the calculator did not compute something or you have identified an error, or you have a suggestion/feedback, please write it in the comments below.

Your Input

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 $$$9 - \left(-7\right) = 16$$$.

Answer

The range is $$$16$$$A.
