How do you find the range of a data set?
Range is the difference between the highest and the lowest values in a given set of observations
Answer: You can find the range of a data set by subtracting lowest value from highest value of an observation.
Let's look into an example to understand this
Range = Highest value - Lowest value
Weight of 5 students are given below in kgs:
10, 12, 15, 17, 18
Highest observed weight = 18 kg
Lowest observed weight = 10kg
Hence, Range of the weight = 18 –10 = 8 kg
