Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1range = maximum value  minimum value 10 = x  (2) 10 = x + 2 10  2 = x + 2  2 8 = x So, our maximum value is 8.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So it was actually range they were asking for?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1make 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Let 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.
