# MATHEMATICS

An industrial psychologist observed 8 drill-press operators for one working day. She recorded the number of times each operator pressed the “faster” button instead of the “stop” button to determine whether the design of the control panel was contributing to the high rate of accidents in the plant. The resulting scores were as follows:

5, 2, 8, 2, 3, 2, 4, 12

Refer to Exhibit 4-1. The range is ____.

1. 12
2. 10
3. 9
4. 2
