# 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

**Explanation:**

**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
