Price Range

There are only two values for the price range - the low price and the high price - that determine the range. The price in the example above shows a low range of 1190 and a high range of 1280. This can be interpreted as a low price of 1.19 dollars per dozen and a high price of 1.28 dollars per dozen.

A weighted price can be viewed by using the proper Source category i.e. M or W. In these instances, the prices will be the same in both columns.
