    median on a histogram?

    hi, i need to find the median from a histogram.
    the total freq is 26 and the histogram looks like this:

    i know i do 26/2=13 and i think i do 11 x 1.1= 12.1, would i do 13+12.1= 25.1 and plot 25.1 on the graph?

    THE Median or A Median?

    ANYTHING with 13 on one side and 13 on the other should do, but you need to ask your text book and your teacher what views they may hold as acceptable for an exam.
