    Quick question (maths related)

    In maths the mode is the most common number but what happens when a couple of numbers appear most often?

    there both the mode ?

    Some data sets contain no repeated elements. In this case, there is no mode (or the mode is the empty set). It is also possible for two or more elements to be repeated with the same frequency. [COLOR="Red"]In these cases, there are two or more modes and the data set is said to be bimodal or multimodal.[/COLOR] In the rare instance of a uniform or nearly uniform distribution, one where each element is repeated the same or nearly the same number of times, one could term it multimodal, but some authors invoke subjectivity by specifying multimodality only when separate, distinct, and fairly high peaks (ignoring fluctuations due to randomness) occur.

    hope that helps
