The mode is the value that occurs most frequently in a set of observations. You can find the mode simply by counting the number of times each value occurs in a data set.

For example, if the weights of five apples are 5, 5, 6, 7, and 8, the apple weight mode is 5 because it is the most frequent value.

Identifying the mode can help you understand your distribution.
