### What is the meaning of the words Mean and Mode in math?

Mean is the sum of a group of numbers divided by the amount of
#'s.
Ex; 3, 1, 7, 2, 4, 1
3+1+7+2+4+1=18
18/6=3
mean=3
The mode is which ever number occurs the most
Ex; 3, 4, 5, 5, 3, 5, 4, 1
mode=5
Note that in the first example, the mode is 1, because there are
two 1's and all of the other numbers occur only once.

### How do you find mode if mean and median is given?

With extreme difficulty, that is, you cannot.
The mode depends entirely upon the data items and the same mode
can be found for different pairs of means and medians; similarly
for any given pair of mean and median, there are many modes
possible.
example:
The data sets {1, 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10}:
mean: (1 + 1 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 19) ÷ 9 = 6
median: [1, 1, 3, 4] , 5, [6, 7, 8, 19] = 5
mode: [1, 1], 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 19 = 1
and {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 7, 19}:
mean: (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 7 + 19) ÷ 9 = 6
median: [1, 2, 3, 4], 5, [6, 7, 7, 19] = 5
mode: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, [7, 7], 19 = 7
both have mean 6 and median 5, but the first has a mode of 1 and
the second a mode of 7 - you cannot tell the mode from the mean and
median.

### What are Differences between mean and mode?

Mean is the average of a set of numbers, mode is the number that
occurs the most.
__________________________________________________________________
Here is an example of finding a mean: Say these were your
numbers..... 1, 1, 1, 2, 5 You add up your numbers and then you'd
get 10. Then you have to divide by how many numbers there are. In
this case there are 5 numbers so divide 10 by 5 and you get your
answer, 2.
___________________________________________________________________
And here is how to find the mode..... Say you had the same numbers,
(1,1,1,2,5) then you'd say that 1 was your mode because it appears
the MOST.

### When is the average median and mode the same?

The average, median and mode of a list of numbers will be the
same when the middle (or mean of the two middle numbers) is equal
to the most common number in the list, and that number is also the
mean. This assumes that the list has only a single mode.
If you arrange such a list of numbers from least to greatest,
the mode value will be grouped at the middle of the list, thus
becoming the median as well. The average of the non-median values
will be equal to the median/mode.
Given a target mean/median/mode and a list length, you can
construct an infinite number of lists that qualify.
Here are some examples:
10 10 10 10 10 (or any list of only one number)
11 12 12 12 12 13
1 2 3 4 5 5 5 6 7 8 9

### How do you the mode in a set of data?

The mode is the most common value in a set of data.
A set of data may not have a mode (for example, if each value is
listed once, then there is no mode since no one value is more
common than another), or a set of data may have more than one mode
(for example, if there are 3 different values that are each listed
5 times in a set of data, then each value is a mode).
Example (no mode): {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} no mode
Example (1 mode): {1, 1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 4, 5} mode is 1
Example (more than 1 mode): {1, 1, 1, 2, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 5} modes
are 1 and 4
Example (more than 1 mode): {1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 5,
5, 5} modes are 1, 2, 4, 5
