# Range of a Data Set Calculator

## Find the range of a data set step by step

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

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