# What is the mode if there are no repeating numbers?

Mode indicates the most frequently occurring item or a number in a data set.

## Answer: If there are no repeating numbers in a given list, there is no mode existing for that particular list.

Let's look into an example:

**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
