1. Find the mode of the following data:

(i) 7, 9, 8, 7, 7, 6, 8, 10, 7 and 6

(ii) 9, 11, 8, 11, 16, 9, 11, 5, 3, 11, 17 and 8

Solution:

(i) It’s seen that 7 occurs 4 times in the given data.

Hence, mode = 7

(ii) Mode = 11

As 11 occurs 4 times in the given data.

2. The following table shows the frequency distribution of heights of 50 boys:

 Height (cm) 120 121 122 123 124 Frequency 5 8 18 10 9

Find the mode of heights.

Solution:

Clearly,

Mode is 122 cm because it has occurred the maximum number of times.

i.e. frequency is 18.

3. Find the mode of following data, using a histogram:

 Class 0-10 10-20 20-30 30-40 40-50 Frequency 5 12 20 9 4

Solution: Clearly,

Mode is in 20-30, because in this class there are 20 frequencies.

4. The following table shows the expenditure of 60 boys on books. Find the mode of their expenditure:

 Expenditure (Rs) No. of students 20-25 4 25-30 7 30-35 23 35-40 18 40-45 6 45-50 2

Solution: Clearly,

Mode is in 30-35 because it has the maximum frequency.
