How can you calculate class interval?

Class interval refers to the numerical width of any class in a particular distribution. It is defined as the difference between the upper-class limit and the lower class limit.

Class Interval = Upper-Class limit – Lower class limit.

In statistics, the data is arranged into different classes and the width of such class is called class interval.
