Calculate the mode average of a set of numbers with this mode calculator.
How do you calculate the mode of a group of numbers?
In a given set of numbers, the mode is the most common number in the group. Let's set up a group of numbers like 1,3,3,5,6,7,8. In this
group, 3 is the most commonly used number, so that is the mode.
Mode is most useful as a measure of central tendency when examining categorical data, such as types of shoes or flavors of ice cream,
for which a mathematical average median value based on ordering can not be calculated.
How is the mode used in life?
Mode is most commonly used in statistics. It's used quite a bit when gathering data sets and comparing with other sets of data. For example, if you
gathered data from students on their favorite color, you'd probably find that there is a most common answer. This would be an example of mode. You may also
ask a group of students how much they receive for a weekly allowance. In a group of 20, you may find that 5 get $0, 4 get $5, 5 get $10, and 6 get $20. The most
common is $20, so this is the mode.
Find the mode for an even set of numbers
Find the mode for the following data set.
104, 57, 35, 90, 90, 102, 11, 55.
Step 1: Place the data in ascending order (smallest to highest).
11, 35, 55, 57, 90, 90, 102, 104.
Step 2: Find the number that is most commonly used.
11, 35, 55, 57, 90, 90, 102, 104
