For a set of scores, will the interquartile range always be
less than the range? Explain your answer with an example.
use range 3.5
No, but the interquartile range will be always less than or equal to the range.
10 10 14 16 18 20 20
Here the range is 20-10=10
The interquartile range is also 20-10=10.
For practical sized distributions, it is quite unlikely that equality holds, but it is a possibility.
