The mode is commonly the number that appears **most often**.

**Example: how to find the mode given numbers 7, 4, 9, 7, 7, 1, 9, 4.**

In {7, 4, 9, 7, 7, 1, 9, 4} the Mode is 7, as it comes most often.

## 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.

**Example: How to calculate mode 3, 7, 5, 13, 33, 25, 39, 33, 40, 33, 14, 12, 56, 33, 29**

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**.

The Mode is **33**
