Find the mode of the values 310, 110, 210, 220, 350, 120, 270, 290, 350, and 400.

Well, if we wanna find the mode, we need to know what the mode is. The mode is actually the most common value. So if you’ve got a set of values, the mode is gonna be the most common one. So to determine the mode, I’m gonna look at each value and see what its frequency is within our set of values.

We gotta start with 310. So we only have one occurrence of 310 in our values. Okay, next value, 110. So again, only one occurrence. The same for 210. 220 also only has one occurrence. 350 appears twice. 120 appears once. Again, 270 appears once. And then finally, we have 290 and 400. And they both only appear once in our values.

So we can see that 350 has appeared twice. So this is the most number of times. So therefore, we can say that the mode for our set of values is 350.
