# How do you find the mode of a data set?

The mode is one of the most frequently used metric in statistics.

## Answer: The mode is the value that appears most frequently in a data set. A set of data may have one mode, more than one mode, or no mode at all.

Let us see an example to understand this better.

## Explanation:

Let us try to find the mode of the data set: 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 3, 3, 4, 2, 7, 4, 4, 5, 4, 1

As we can see the number 4 occurs 5 times which is more than any of the other numbers.

Note that if no number in a set of numbers occurs more than once, that set is said to have no mode like for the data set: 2, 7, 9, 11, 5, 6, 8
