# What if there is no mode in a set of numbers?

Mode means a value or a number that appears most frequently in a dataset.

## Answer: It is possible for a data set to have no mode. In that case, we cannot use mode as a measure of central tendency.

The mode is one of the values of the measure of central tendency. Let us explore what happens if there is no mode in a set of numbers.

**Explanation:**

Yes, it is possible to have no mode for a set of data.

If this is the case, we cannot use mode as a measure of central tendency. For example, the dataset: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, does not have any repeating number, and hence it does not have any mode.
