The median of an ungrouped data and the median

Question:

The median of an ungrouped data and the median calculated when the same data is grouped are always the same. Do you think that this is a correct

statement? Give reason.

Solution:

Not always, because for calculating median of a grouped data, the formula used is based on the assumption that the observations in the classes are

uniformal distributed (or equally spaced).
