Example Question #1931 : Algebra 1

Jennifer has to sort and organize numbers for her job. Her company would like her to find the most frequently occurring number of times an outside company uses their services. Each company uses Jennifer's company the following number of times a year: {10, 10, 6, 8, 8, 10, 9, 9, 9, 6, 2, 10 2, 2 10, 9, 7, 8, 9, 10}.

What is the most occurring number of times that Jennifer's company is used a year?

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

This is a mode question; to find the mode you must first organize the numbers in ascending order:

{2, 2, 2, 6, 6, 7, 8, 8, 8, 9, 9, 9, 9, 9, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10}

Upon doing this you will find that the number 10 occurs the most number of times - six.
