Set M consists of six consecutive negative integers. What is the range of set M?
A. -6
B. -5
C. 5
D. 6
E. Cannot be determined from the information provided
In the set that consists of 6 consecutive negative numbers,
if the smallest number is x, the largest number will be x+5
The range for any such set will be x+5 - x =
5(Option C)
P.S this is the case for all consecutive integers - negative or positive
Alternate methodLet the set be -6,-5,-4,-3,-2,-1(6 consecutive negative numbers)
The range of such of a set is largest - smallest = -1 - (-6) = -1 + 6 = 5
