The range of a set of data is the difference between the highest and lowest values in the set. In this case, the range is 6, which means that the difference between the highest and lowest number of pets owned by the 10 people is 6.

If we assume that the lowest number of pets owned is 0 (since it is not possible to own a negative number of pets) and the highest number of pets owned is 6, then the total number of pets owned by the 10 people could be calculated as follows:

0 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 = 21

Therefore, the total number of pets owned by the 10 people could be 21.

The range of a dataset is the difference between the maximum and minimum values. If the range is 6, it means that the difference between the highest and lowest number of pets owned is 6.

To find the total number of pets, we need to add up the number of pets owned by each person. However, we don't have that information in the question. We only know that the range is 6.

However, we can make some educated guesses about the total number of pets.

If the range is 6, it is possible that the minimum number of pets owned is 0 and the maximum number of pets owned is 6. In this case, the total number of pets would be 6.

However, it is also possible that the range is 6 because there are two people who own 3 pets each and one person who owns 9 pets. In this case, the total number of pets would be 15.

Without more information, it is impossible to say for sure what the total number of pets is. However, based on the range, it is likely that the total number of pets is between 6 and 15.
