# Finding difference in a number range

This is my problem. I have a scale from 0 to 15 and five different
elements with their own position on that scale. How can I understand if
they are spread all over the scale, have different positions on the
scale, or if they are close and nearby each-other?

These are close: 2,3,4,3,2

These are not so close: 2,4,3,12,15

Never heard of that term. Great to know. Thanks. Still need to solve my
problem, but now I know what to search for.
