Step: 1

Range is the difference between the maximum and minimum values in a given data set.

Step: 2

The maximum weight in the data set is 44 lb and the minimum weight is 4 lb.

[Subtract.]

Correct Answer is : 40 lb

Step: 1

The highest salary is a combination of the highest stem and the corresponding highest leaf.

Step: 2

The least salary is a combination of the least stem and the corresponding least leaf.

Step: 3

In the plot, the highest salary is $71,000 and the least salary is $56,000.

Step: 4

Range = Highest value - Lowest value

= $71,000 - $56,000 = $15,000

[Substitute and subtract.]

Step: 5

So, the range of the data is $15,000.

Correct Answer is : $15,000

Step: 1

Step: 3

So, the range of the prices of sweets = $24 - $7 = $17.

Correct Answer is : $17

Step: 1

Range is the difference between the maximum and minimum data values of the data set.

Step: 2

The maximum score of Paul is 29 and the minimum score of Paul is 15.

Step: 3

So, the range of the scores = 29 - 15 = 14.

Correct Answer is : 14

Step: 1

Range of the data set is the difference between the maximum and minimum data values of the data set.

Step: 2

From the data set, the maximum height (in inches) of the students is 73 and the minimum height (in inches) of the students is 56.

Step: 3

So, the range of the heights (in inches) of 10 students = 73 - 56 = 17.

Correct Answer is : 17

Year | Population |

1960 | 67000 |

1970 | 84000 |

1980 | 104000 |

1990 | 137000 |

Step: 1

Range is the difference between the maximum and minimum data values of the data set.

Step: 2

From the table, the maximum population in the town is 137000 and minimum population in the town is 67000.

Step: 3

So, the range of the population in the town = 137000 - 67000 = 70000.

Correct Answer is : 70000

Step: 1

Range of the data set is the difference between the maximum and minimum data values of the data set.

Step: 2

From the data set, the maximum score of the students is 74 and the minimum score of the students is 57.

Step: 3

So, the range of the scores of the 10 students = 74 - 57 = 17

Correct Answer is : 17

Year | Number of lawyers |

1960 | 66000 |

1970 | 84000 |

1980 | 109000 |

1990 | 139000 |

Step: 1

Range is the difference between the maximum and minimum data values in a data set.

Step: 2

From the table, the maximum number of lawyers in the town was 139000 and minimum number of lawyers in the town was 66000.

Step: 3

So, the range of the data = 139000 - 66000 = 73000

Correct Answer is : 73000

Step: 1

Range of a data set is the difference between the maximum and minimum data values of the data set.

Step: 2

From the data set, the maximum score of the students is 74 and the minimum score of the students is 57.

Step: 3

So, the range of the scores of the 10 students = 74 - 57 = 17

Correct Answer is : 17

Height (In inches) | 57 | 58 | 59 | 60 | 61 | 62 | 63 | 64 |

No. of students | 3 | 5 | 4 | 2 | 7 | 6 | 3 | 5 |

Step: 1

Range is the difference between the maximum and minimum data values of the data set.

Step: 2

From the table, the ordered data set is 57, 57, 57, 58, 58, 58, 58, 58, 59, 59, 59, 59, 60, 60, 61, 61, 61, 61, 61, 61, 61, 62, 62, 62, 62, 62, 62, 63, 63, 63, 64, 64, 64, 64 and 64.

Step: 3

From the data set, the maximum data value is 64 and the minimum data value is 57.

Step: 4

So, the range of the data set = 64 - 57 = 7.

Correct Answer is : 7

Month | rainfall (mm) |

January | 35 |

February | 45 |

March | 38 |

April | 42 |

May | 40 |

Step: 1

Range is the difference between the maximum and minimum data values of the data set.

Step: 2

The data values in the ascending order are 35, 38, 40, 42 and 45.

Step: 3

The maximum rainfall is 45 mm and the minimum rainfall is 35 mm.

Step: 4

So, the range of the data = 45 - 35 = 10 mm

Correct Answer is : 10 mm

Month | rainfall (mm) |

January | 35 |

February | 49 |

March | 38 |

April | 48 |

May | 43 |

Step: 1

Range is the difference between the maximum and minimum data values of the data set.

Step: 2

The temperatures in the ascending order are 35, 38, 43, 48 and 49.

Step: 3

The maximum rainfall is 49 mm and the minimum rainfall is 35 mm.

Step: 4

So, the range of the data = 49 - 35 = 14

Correct Answer is : 14 mm

Step: 1

Range is the difference between the greatest number and the least number.

Step: 2

The maximum score is 70 and the minimum score is 50.

Step: 3

So, the range of scores is 20.

[70 - 50 = 20.]

Correct Answer is : 20
