Mode
Mode is a number which occur or appears most often or frequently in a set of numbers. It is that value which has the highest frequency. It is denoted by M_{0}.
Calculation of Mode
Individual series:
In an individual series, mode can be found in by inspection. If the value occurring maximum number of times, then that is a modal value.
For example, 1,2,14,3,3,5,2,3
Variable  No. of occurence 
1  2 
2  2 
3  3 
4  1 
5  1 
In the above table, a variable value 3 repeats maximum number of times i.e. 3
\(\therefore\) Mode (M_{0}) = 3
Discrete Series:
In case of discrete series also, mode can be obtained by inspection only. Mode occurs with maximum frequency . For example,
No. of student  4  5  6  7  8 
Marks  10  20  30  15  25 
Here, maximum frequency os 30. So, corresponding modal size is 6.
 Mode is a number which occur or appears most often or frequently in a set of numbers.
 Mode is denoted by (M_{o}) in mathematics.
