State whether the statements are True or False.

The range of the data 3, 7, 1, –2, 2, 6, –3, –5 would change if 8 was added to each value in the data.

Answer :

False

Range for the original data = 7-(-5) = 12.


The new data would be 3+8, 7+8, 1+8, -2+8, 2+8, 6+8, -3+8, -5+8


i.e., 11, 15, 9, 6, 10, 14, 5, 3.


The new range would be 15-(3) = 12


So the range will not change.
