A. 5 B. 6 C. 7 D. 11 E. 12 Since 4 is the least integer in list K, then 7 is the largest integer in that list. Thus the range of the positive integers in the list is 71=6. Answer: B.

Bunnel , I didn't understand when the largest positive integer in the list is 7 , how did the range become 71 = 6 , shouldn't it be 7

A. 5 B. 6 C. 7 D. 11 E. 12 Solution: Set K = ( 4, 3, 2, 1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7) Range is defined as the highest value of f(x) and the lowest value of f(x). Over here the range will be 7  (4) = 11. Try making a graph of the set K and see what is the difference between the maximum value and the minimum value.

Try making a graph of the set K and see what is the difference between the maximum value and the minimum value. The set is {4, 3, 2, 1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7}. The question asks to find the range of the POSITIVE integers in the list. The range of the POSITIVE integers in the list is {largest}  {smallest} = 7  1 = 6. Hope it's clear.

Oh! I misread the positive numbers. Then the range is 7  1 = 6

5 6 7 11 12 Simple one. However, the only thing to notice in this question is " range of the positive integers". You miss this and you are gone

Answer Options:
A 5 B 6 C 7 D 11 E 12 numbers are 4,3,2,1,0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7 range of positive numbers = 71= 6 note: zero is neither positive nor negative. it is neutral.

Answer = B = 6 If least = 4, then largest = 7 Range = 7  1 = 6

so if it asks you for the positive and negative range then it would be 11 right? 7 (4)= 11? or do you get two answers one for positive and one for negative?

The set is {4, 3, 2, 1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7}. The range of the POSITIVE integers in the list is {largest}  {smallest} = 7  1 = 6. The range of the NEGATIVE integers in the list is {largest}  {smallest} = 1  (4) = 3. The range of the whole set is {largest}  {smallest} = 7  (4) = 11.

Bunuel chetan2u VeritasKarishma GMATPrepNowQuote: List K consists of 12 consecutive integers. If 4 is the least integer in list K, what is the range of the positive integers in list K? Is not this an arithmetic progression with common difference as 1? nth term in given by \(a_n\) = \(a_1\) + (n1) d We are given that \(a_1\)= 4 and hence we can solve for a_12 and n=12
