# What is the value of the mode when all values in the data set are different?

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

## Answer: There is no mode if all values in the data set are different.

Let's look into some examples

**Explanation:**

Let's take the following datasets to calculate the mode

Example 1: 1, 4, 8, 11, 8, 7, 9, 8

From the given dataset, 8 has the highest frequency and hence, the mode is 8

Example 2: 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 11, 13

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