Example Question #84 : How To Find Mode

A zoo just recently took inventory of all the new animals they received from the neighboring wildlife conservatory. This was their list:

snake, kangaroo, elephant, bonobo, bonobo, snake, lemur, snake, lemur, bonobo

What is the mode of the inventory log of recently received animals?

 

Possible Answers:

lemurs

snakes

elephants

snakes and bonobos

kangaroos and elephants

Mode animals

This is one simple way to organize the given information. Each "X" represents each time the given animal appeared on the inventory log. The animal (in this case) with the most x's above its name appears most often and may be considered the mode. In this case, we see 3 x's for bonobos and snakes. Therefore, snakes and bonobos appear most often. 

Example Question #85 : How To Find Mode

A group of students were recording the weather for two weeks for a science project. Here was their data set:
