No, the midpoint is the result of adding the upper and lower limits in a class and dividing that by 2. Essentially the mid point is the average of the two limits.

What is the difference between stated and real class limits?

Real Class Limits are the class intervals of a frequency distribution when stated as in continuous categories. ie. 18.5-19.5, 20.7-34.7 Stated Class Limits are the class intervals of a frequency distribution when stated as discrete categories. ie. 19-21, 23-25

What is a 'crude mode'?

Crude Mode (Grouped data) is the midpoint of the class limit with the highest frequency. Therefore, in getting the Crude Mode, look for the highest frequency and look at it's class limit. Lastly, get he class limit's midpoint. The Class Limit's midpoint will be the Crude Mode (Grouped Data).

When drawing frequency distribution histograms what does it mean when the distribution is broken?

A histogram is "a representation of a frequency distribution by means of rectangles whose widths represent class intervals and whose areas are proportional to the corresponding frequencies.Broken distribution means that no data point falls in that class.
