# 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: We can find the range of a data set by subtracting the lowest value from the highest value in a set of observations.

Let's look into an example to understand this.

**Explanation:**

**Range = Highest value - Lowest value**

The weight of 5 students are given below in kgs:

10, 12, 15, 17, 18

Highest observed weight = 18 kg

Lowest observed weight = 10 kg

Hence, Range of the weight = 18 –10 = 8 kg

### Therefore, we can find the range of a data set by subtracting the lowest value from the highest value in an observation.
