How to find the mode.
Many students ask how to find the mode. Its a common question and one that is easily answered.
The mode is quite simply, the number that occurs the most often in a sequence.
For example lets look at the example that we used in another post, we have a sample set containing 2, 2, 6, 4, 9, 0, 2 and 4. Once we have sorted the list into numerical order of 0, 2, 2, 2, 4, 4, 6 and 9, it becomes quite simple to see that the mode is obviously 2.
So once you understand what the mode is, it is quite simple to find the mode in a squence of numbers.
