What does range mean in maths??????

thank you if your reply :prange looks at the difference between the lowest value and highest value in a set, if you are looking at a series of temperatures in the set {-40, 0, 40, 100}, you would take the highest value (100) and subtract the lowest value (-40) from it.

Ex: 100 - (-40) = 100 + 40 = 140

Your range for this set is 140.Range is the corresponding value of a function which derives its value from the domain.

In simpler terms it would be analagous to the y value in a equation which has x and y.

example: y=3x+2 This could also be written as f(x)=3x+2

The range of this example would be all real numbers.

If we were to look at f(x)=1/(x+2), the range would be all real numbers except x=-2 (this would be undefined).

Range can also be defined as a set. The numbers do not need to be continuous.

In short we could say that the range is the y value or the f(x) (this is not always the case) but to be precise we could say the range are the value(s) that correspond to given numbers in the domain.
