MODE

What is it?

  • The number that appears most frequent in a data set.

How do we use it?

  1. List down all the numbers in the data set.
  2. Take out the number that appears the most in the data set.
  3. If there are 2 or more modes, just leave it that way.
Why and when do we use it?

  • It is used when there is a number frequently appearing in the data set.
  • It cannot be used when all the numbers in the data set is not common.
