For a set of given observation, mode is that observation which occurs

maximum number of times.

**1.** Find the mode of the given set of number

2, 2, 3, 5, 4, 3, 2, 3, 3, 5

**Solution:**

Arranging the number with same values together, we get

2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 3, 4, 5, 5

We observe that 3 occurs maximum number of times, i.e., four.

Therefore, mode of this data is 3.

**Note:**

A data may not have a mode.

**2.** The data 3, 4, 1, 5, 4, 2

has no mode because no number occurs more number of times then any other

number.

**●**

A data may have more than one mode.

**3.** The data 2, 5,

1, 3, 5, 7, 6, 3, 8 have two modes 3 and 5.

Therefore, each is repeated two times which is maximum.

**4.** The height of 50 plants in a garden

are given below.

Height (cm) |
10 | 25 | 30 | 40 | 45 |

Number Plants |
13 | 15 | 12 | 8 | 2 |

Find the mode of the data.

**Solution:**

The frequency of 25 is maximum.

So, the mode of this data is 15.
