**Mode calculator **

The mode calculator is used for finding the mode value and range of a data set along with the median and sorted array.

**What is the mode?**

The mode in mathematics and statistics means the value occurring the most in the dataset. It is possible to have more than one or none mode. It is a term of central tendency while the others are mean and median.

**What is the range?**

The difference between the highest and lowest data value is the range of that dataset.

**How to calculate mode?**

There is no formula to calculate the Mode. It is simply observed from the data itself or its graph.

**Example:**

Identify the mode values from the given data sets. And find their range.

- 1,2,56,7,23,11,1,1,0,3
- 16,16,16,16,17,17,17,15,15,15,15
- 14,10,8,16,22

**Solution: **

Look for the recurring values.

**First set:**

There is only one repeated value; 1.

Range = Highest value - Lowest value

= 56 - 0

= 56

**Second set:**

All values are recurring.

16 = 4 times

17 = 3 times

15 = 4 times

The mode values are 16 and 15.

Range = Highest value - Lowest value

= 17 - 15

= 2

**Third set:**

No value re-occurred.

Range = Highest value - Lowest value

= 22 - 8

= 14

**Graph:**

Three groups have value point 3. So 3 is the mode value.

Range = Highest value - Lowest value

= 8 - 3

= 5
