Worksheet: The Mode of a Data Set
In this worksheet, we will practice finding and interpreting the mode of a data set.

- B6, 20, 15, 15
- C6, 6, 15, 20
- D6, 20, 5, 15
- E6, 22, 14, 15
Find the value of given that the mode of is 12.
A group of students were selling boxes of cookies to raise money for a charity. The line plot shows how many boxes of cookies the students sold. Determine whether the mode would be a good measure of central tendency for the data or not, and explain why.
- ANo, the mode is not a good measure of central tendency because it is very high compared with the other data points.
- BYes, the mode closely represents the middle of the data.
Emma cycles 20 miles every Monday, 13 miles every Wednesday, and 17 miles every Friday. Describe how the mode would be affected if Emma adds a 24-mile bike ride every Saturday.

- BThere would be a mode of 24 instead of no mode.
- CThe mode would increase from 13 to 24.
- DThe mode would decrease from 24 to 13.
- EThere is no mode either way.
