# Is there a term that means that the numbers are well spread out?

For example: 1, 12, 34, 41 are well spread-out, but 1, 2, 3, 4 are not well spread-out. I guess spread-out can work, but I am looking for a single-word or a non-composite adjective to say this.

• spread out compared to what? 1, 12, 34, and 41 are very close together if we are talking about numbers that reach into the thousands or more. In mathematics, integers are adjacent if they are right next to each other, but 1 and 3 are not (however 11 and 13 are adjacent primes) Commented Apr 29, 2020 at 1:57
• On the contrary, at least in terms of a pattern, I would say that 1,2,3,4 is much more evenly spread out than 1, 12, 34, and 41. (If you look at the lowest number and the highest number, and then the distribution of the numbers in between.) Commented Apr 29, 2020 at 1:59
• 1,2,3,4 (each a difference of 1) are as evenly spaced as 1,11,21,31 (each a difference of 10) so I agree that 1,12,34, and 41 are (as Jason suggests) not as evenly spaced (or spread out) as 1,2,3,4 Commented Apr 29, 2020 at 2:06
• Maybe "dispersed" or "scattered". You might need to specify the space available for the numbers (such as integers 0 to 100) for any term to have meaning. But if you define terms in what you are writing, you could use anything you want. Commented Apr 29, 2020 at 5:19
• Do you consider {1,2,3,41} to be spread out? Commented Apr 29, 2020 at 12:14
