Another new stats page: Mean, Median and Mode from Grouped Frequencies

That was a lot more than I knew about it. I will use the page for notes, thanks!
In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?
Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.
Another good page. I'd not met those formulas for median and mode in grouped tables; I've always worked from a sketch of a cumulative frequency graph; so I derived my own.
For continuous data, taking the median as the (n+1)/2 th value I get
It doesn't make much difference and it's only an estimate anyway, but, for example, with the baby carrots example I get 172.0, compared with your 171.7.
I drew a cumulative frequency graph and found the median from that as 172.
I've done some 'googling' and both formulas came up.
