# Mode

Please enter data above to calculate the mode.

## Explanation

The mode of a data set is the number (or numbers) which appear more frequently than any other numbers in the set. Thus, the mode is the value that, if you were to randomly select one, you would be most likely to obtain.

If you had the following data set: 2, 3, 3, 5, 7, 9, the mode would be 3, because it appears twice in the list, and all the others appear only once.

If you had the following data set: 2, 4, 4, 5, 5, 6, we say that the set is "bimodal," which means that it has two modes (4 and 5). In some math curricula, it is stated instead that the data set has no mode, since there is no single number that appears more frequently than all the rest. We can also use the term "multimodal" to indicate more than one mode. This term is convenient if there are three or more modes.
