## What is the Range?

In statistics, the range of a set of numbers is the distance or difference between the largest and smallest. Colloquially, it's sometimes called the spread of a set of a numbers.

## Formula for Statistical Range

The formula for the range is:

range = max(a, b, c, ..., n) - min(a, b, c, ..., n)

### Example Range Calculation

Let's say you want to take the range of 4 numbers: -3, 4, 7, and 500. Here's how it works:

range = max(-3, 4, 7, 500) - min(-3, 4, 7, 500)\\=500 - -3\\range=503

## Using the Range Calculator

In the text box at the top, enter a list of numbers. You can enter whole numbers, negatives, decimals, fractions (in the form n/d), and percentages (a number with % at the end).

When done, hit the Calculate Range button. The tool will find the maximum and minimum in your set and return you the range.
