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 7-1=6.

Bunnel , I didn't understand when the largest positive integer in the list is 7 , how did the range become 7-1 = 6 , shouldn't it be 7

No, the positive integers within the list are {1,2,3,4,5,7} for which the range is 7 - 1 = 6

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.

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

k={-4,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7}

positive integers in the list k={1,2,3,4,5,6,7}
range=(7-1)=6

Ans B...hope it helps

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

(E) 12

Can someone explain how to arrive at the OA? I am getting range of 11!!

OMG!! totally need to pay attention to what Q is asking...yes...the OA is correct!

numbers are -4,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7

range of positive numbers = 7-1= 6

note: zero is neither positive nor negative. it is neutral.

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.
