**MODE()**

- Parameters are set of numbers to calculate the Mode.
- MODE(), returns the most common value in a data set.

## Description

- The mode is the number repeated most often in the given set of numbers.
- The mode is not necessarily unique.The set of numbers having two modes is called
*bimodal*. Also the set of numbers Having more than two modes is called*multimodal*. - In , First parameter is required.From the second parameter are optional.
- In this function Parametrs are either it can be numbers,arrays ,references of cells or we can enter the logical values directly.
- If the referred array contains text,logical values or empty cells, those values are ignored.
- This function will show the result as Error

when the numbers are error values or text that cannot change into numbers.

- The MODE function measures central tendency.
- The three most common measures of central tendency are: A.M, Median,& Mode.
- : It is calculating by adding the given set of numbers and divided by the count of the given set of numbers. E.g:Average of 2,4,2,7,2,3 and 5 is 3.6
- : It is the middle number of a sorted list(Ascending order) of numbers. E.g:The median of 2,2,2,3,4,5,7 is 3
- : It is the most frequently repeated number in a given set of numbers. E.g.The mode of 2,2,2,3,4,5 and 7 is 2

## ZOS

- The syntax is to calculate the mode of the given numbers in ZOS is .
- Parameters are set of numbers to calculate the Mode.

- For e.g.,MODE(10,6,2,6,7,7,8,4)

## Examples

- =MODE(2,3,2,2,4,5) = 2
- =MODE(1.21,1.01,1.5,1.21,1.25,1.21) = 1.21
- =MODE(2,1,4,3) = #N/A (MODE NOT FOUND)
- =MODE(0,1,2,3,0) = 0
