What is the range

Range is a measure of dispersion, A measure of by how much the values in the data set are likely to differ from their mean. The range is easily calculated by subtracting the lowest from the highest value in the set.

Range formula

This calculator uses the following formula for calculating the range:

Range = maximum(xi) - minimum(xi)

where xi represents the set of values.
