TO FIND THE MODE
 TO FIND THE MODE OF UNGROUPED DATA JUST FIND THE
MAX FREQUENCY.
 OBSERVATION CORRESPONDING TO THE MAX
FREQUENCY IS THE MODE.
 Eg. 11, 9, 2, 2, 11, 15, 9, 2, 3, 12
 THE MODE FOR ABOVE DATA IS 2.
MODE FOR GROUPED
FREQUENCY DATA
 FOR THIS A HISTOGRAM IS REQUIRED.
 ALSO, THE FOLLOWING FORMULA CAN BE USED
MODE = L +
1−0
21−0−2
