# For the data set 6, 34, 12, and 14, what is the range?

Dec 20, 2014

The range which is a measure of dispersion is calculated by subtracting the lowest from the highest value in the data set.

Range = max(x_i) - min$\left({x}_{i}\right)$

We can start with arranging the data set from smallest to largest.

$6 , 12 , 14 , 34$

Population size: 4

Therefore the range is,

$34 - 6 = 28$
