### How Do You Find the Midpoint of a Histogram When the Bins are Ranges?

Finding the midpoint of a histogram is a way to locate the center of a range of values. When the bins are ranges, we can find the midpoint by adding the upper and lower bounds of the range and dividing the sum by two. This gives us a value that is right in the middle […]
