    Hello,

    Regarding the typical Histogram chart (using Excel), where in addition
    to the columns (Bins) shown, you also have plotted a Cumulative
    Percentage curve.

    Is the point of inflection for this cumulative percentage curve
    the numerical "average" value of the data values ? Always ?

    Thanks,
    B.

    No - it is not particularly related to the arithmetic mean except for
    symmetric distributions. It is more related to the mode (the location
    of the tallest column).
