Finding the Mode

To find the mode or modal value, it is sufficient to place the numbers in sequence. Then calculate how many of each number. A figure that seems most often is the mode.

Put all numbers in order:

3, 5, 7, 12, 13, 14, 25, 33, 33, 33, 33, 39, 40, 56, 29

This makes it easy to find which digits seem most often.
