when I look up a historical quote- I get a Price on that date.
I also get a split adjusted price. When I look at the chart for that date it appears that the acutal chart price looks like the split price not the quoted price of opening and closing. How do I know what actual price that the stock traded for that day?

You'll have to reverse the split on the split-adjusted price. If the chart says the range is $10 to $12 for the day in question, and there had been a 2-for-1 split, then the unadjusted range would be $20 to $24 per share. The 2-for-1 split had halved the price, so you'd have double the price to get back the unadjusted price. If there have been several splits since the date in question, you'd have to reverse them all to get back the original prices.
