    the range is the biggest number in the list of numbers minus the smallest number

    in this list 1 2 3 4 5

    you do 5-1 so the range is 4

    Range is the difference between the lowest and highest numbers in a series. For example, the range of the following number series 8, 10, 12, 15, 22, 34, 100 is equal to highest minus lowest or 100 - 8 = 92 is your Range.

    the range in a set of numbers from the lowest # to the highest #.

    ex: 7, 8, 3, 9, 4, 12

    range=12(highest #) - 3 (lowest #)=9

    The range is simply a measure of the spread of the data and is calculated by taking the lowest value away from the highest value

    You must be studying functions. A function is kind of like a machine. You put something into the machine (x) and you get something out (f(x)). The set of allowable values that you may input is called the domain. The set of possible values that may be output is called the range. Stated another way: all of the possible x values makes up your domain, all of the possible values for f(x) makes up your range.

    the range of a set of data is the difference between the highest and lowest values in the set.

    the difference between highest and lowest values of observations in a data is called range of data.

    in a series: 6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13

    range= (13-6)=7

    For a function y = f(x),

    the domain is the set of values that x is restricted to.

    The range, on the other hand, is the set of values that y is restricted to.

    you have an independent variable and a dependent variable as a function of the independent variable.

    the values assumed by the independent variable constitute the domain and the corresponding values of the dependent variable constitute the range

    suppose you have an array of numbers

    1,2,4.5,7,9,11

    range is the difference between the

    largest and the smallest number

    =11-1

    =10
