In statistics, range is defined simply as the difference between the maximum and minimum observations. It is intuitively obvious why we define range in statistics this way - range should suggest how diversely spread out the values are, and by computing the difference between the maximum and minimum values, we can get an estimate of the spread of the data.For example, suppose an experiment involves finding out the weight of lab rats and the values in grams are 320, 367, 423, 471 and 480. In this case, the range is simply computed as 480-320 = 160 grams.
