    The mode is the MOST mentioned number so if 5 is mentioned 3 times and 6 is mentioned 4 times and the rest of the numbers are mentioned 2 times... Since 6 is mentioned the MOST.. it is the mode.. 1,1,2,2,3,3,4,4,5,5,5,6,6,6,6,7,7,8,8 In the case that there are two numbers that are mentioned the most... Like 5 is mentioned 3 times and 6 is mentioned 3 times and the rest of the number are mentioned 2 times.. the answer is 5 and 6 are the mode... it is called bi-modal 1,1,2,2,3,3,4,4,5,5,5,6,6,6,7,7,8,8,9,9
