Mode

Mode

How to find the mode of the given data: examples and their solutions.

Example 1

Find the mode for the data below: 1, 3, 1, 2, 2, 4, 2.

The mode is the value
that has the greatest frequency.

In this example,
2 has the greatest frequency: 3.
So the mode is 2.

It's one of the ways to represent the whole data.

Other ways: Average (Mean), Median

Example 2

Find the mode for the data below: 4, 1, 5, 2, 3, 6, 3, 5.

3 and 5 have the greatest frequency: 2.
Then 3 and 5 are the modes.

If a data has two modes,
then it's called 'bimodal'.

Example 3

Find the mode for the data below: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4.

Every values have the same frequency: 1.
So this data has no mode.

Example 4

The following table shows quiz scores of 20 students: [Scores(Frequency)] 0(1), 1(1), 2(4), 3(7), 4(5), 5(2) Find the mode of the data.

'3 scores' has the greatest frequency: 7.
So the mode is 3.
