# What does mode mean?

**mode**is the number that appears most frequently in a set. A set of numbers may have one

**mode**, more than one

**mode**, or no

**mode**at all. Other popular measures of central tendency include the

**mean**, or the average (

**mean**) of a set, and the median, the middle value in a set.

Considering this, how do you find the mode?

The **mode** of a data set is the number that occurs most frequently in the set. To easily find the **mode**, put the numbers in order from least to greatest and count how many times each number occurs. The number that occurs the most is the **mode**!

One may also ask, what is mode with example? **Mode**: The most frequent number—that is, the number that occurs the highest number of times. **Example**: The **mode** of {4 , 2, 4, 3, 2, 2} is 2 because it occurs three times, which is more than any other number.

In this manner, what does the mode mean in maths?

**Mode**. more The number which appears most often in a set of numbers. Example: in {6, 3, 9, 6, 6, 5, 9, 3} the **Mode** is 6 (it occurs most often). See: Median.

Why is the mode useful?

The median may be more **useful** than the mean when there are extreme values in the data set as it is not affected by the extreme values. The **mode** is **useful** when the most common item, characteristic or value of a data set is required.
