Mode The item which is repeated the maximum number of times in the data is called the mode or the modal value Merits of Mode 1.) The logic behind its computation is easily understood. 2.) Even when some of the extreme values are missing, it can be easily computed. 3.) It can be calculated graphically. Demerits of mode 1.) It is not directly based on all the values. 2.) It is not as stable as the arithmetic mean. Note. Relation between Mean, Mode and Median Mode = 3 Median  2 Mean Example Find the mode of the following data 14, 25, 14, 28, 18, 17, 18, 14, 23, 22, 14, 18 Solution We make a frequency table for the data.
Mode = 14
