    range is 10 and least value is -2, so total number of data is 10 and 2 more sorry i guess its 13, including 0

    range = maximum value - minimum value 10 = x - (-2) 10 = x + 2 10 - 2 = x + 2 - 2 8 = x So, our maximum value is 8.

    make sure you look at your notes on maximum value, minimum value and range. I think this is some sort of getting you into the language of statistics.

    The range and minimum value were given. You are being asked to solve for the maximum value. The "formula" is Range = maximum value - minimum value This problem wants you to look for the maximum value. We just did a little bit of "algebraic" manipulation to get it.

    Let me elaborate. A data set 4, 8, 12, 16, 18, 22 has maximum value of 22 and minimum value of 4. So if we were to look for the range we use the formula: range = maximum value - minimum value range = 22 - 4 range = 18 Let us switch things around and say that we are looking for the maximum value. range = maximum value - minimum value 18 = x - 4 (I use "x" but you can use any placeholder) we add 4 on both sides of the equation so x is left by itself. 18 + 4 = x - 4 + 4 22 = x Therefore, our maximum value is 22.
