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.
