# What is the mode if all the numbers are different?

For a set of numbers, 'mode' refers to the most frequently occurring number

## Answer: There is no mode if all the numbers in the set are different

Let's look into some examples

## Explanation:

Let's take the following datasets to calculate the mode

Example 1: 2,3,5,6,5,7,5

From the given dataset, 5 has the highest frequency and hence, the mode is 5

Example 2: 5,9,1,3,7,6,8

From the given dataset, every data is occurring once and hence, there is no repetition. Therefore, the dataset doesn't have a mode

Thus, if all the numbers are different, then there is no mode for the given set of numbers.

**Thus, no mode exists, if all the numbers in the set are different.**
