# Calculate the Mode of the Following Distribution: - Mathematics

Sum

Calculate the mode of the following distribution:

 Class 10 − 15 15 − 20 20 − 25 25 − 30 30 − 35 Frequency 4 7 20 8 1

#### Solution

Modal class is the class with the highest frequency
modal class is 20 - 25
lower limit of modal class i.e l = 20
class size i.e h = 5
frequency of modal class f1 = 20
frequency of preceding class f0 = 7
frequency of succeeding class f2 = 8
Using the formula
mode = l + (( f_1 − f_0)/(2f_1 − f_0 − f_2)) xx h

Plugging the values in the formula we get
mode = 20 + ( 20 −7)/( 2 × 20 − 7 − 8) xx 5

mode = 20 + (13)/(25) xx 5

mode = 20+13/5

mode = 113/5 = 22.6
