## Class Width Formula

The following equation can be used to calculate the class width of a data set.

CW = (M – m)/n

- Where CW is the class width
- M is the maximum value
- m is the minimum value
- n is the total number of classes.

## Class Width Definition

Class width is defined as the difference between the upper and lower bounds of a class or category.

## FAQ

**What is a class width?**

The class width is the difference between the upper and lower bounds of a class or category. These upper and lower bounds are often referred to as the maximums and minimums.

**How do you calculate class width?**

The class width is calculated by subtracting the minimum value from the maximum value and dividing it by the total number of classes.

**What are the maximum and minimum values?**

The max and min values are the largest and smallest values in the data set.
