Could you elaborate on why these values are "very" spread apart? I can see from the equation the answer will be negative and with a little quick math you can see the number will be less than one, but my initial thought was not to estimate.
When you think about the "spread" of the answers are you thinking in just absolute magnitude or relative to each other. I.E. a question's "spread" with two answers: A:100 B=10 is equal to a questions with options A. .1 and B. .01?
Thanks
When I think about the "spread" of the answer choices, I'm talking about relative to each other.
For example, the answer choices 0.01, 0.02, 0.04, 0.08 and 0.16 have a big spread, since each answer choice is TWICE the value of the answer choice before it.
I consider this spread identical to the following answer choices: 3, 6, 12, 24 and 48
Cheers,
Brent
