# The given distribution shows the number of runs scored by some top batsman of the world in one-day international cricket matches

Find the mode of the data.

**Solution:**

Modal Class is the class with the highest frequency

Mode = l + [(f₁ - f₀) / (2f₁ - f₀ - f₂)] × h

Here,

- Class size, h
- Lower limit of modal class, l
- Frequency of modal class, f₁
- Frequency of class preceding modal class, f₀
- Frequency of class succeeding the modal class, f₂

From the table, it can be observed that the maximum class frequency is 18, belonging to class interval 4000 − 5000

Therefore, modal class = 4000 − 5000

Class size, h = 1000

Lower limit of modal class, l = 4000

Frequency of modal class, f₁ = 18

Frequency of class preceding modal class, f₀ = 4

Frequency of class succeeding the modal class, f₂ = 9

Mode = l + [(f₁ - f₀)/(2f₁ - f₀ - f₂)] × h

= 4000 + [(18 - 4)/(2 × 18 - 4 - 9)] × 1000

= 4000 + [14/(36 - 13)] × 1000

= 4000 + (14/23) × 1000

= 4000 + 608.695

= 4608.695

= 4608.7

Hence the mode is 4608.7
