In this power point calculation of arithmetic mode is explained for individual observation, discrete series, continuous series

- 1. Calculation of Mode SUBMITTED BY DR. SUNITA OJHA ASSISTANT PROFESSOR SURESH GYAN VIHAR UNIVERSITY
- 2. Mode • It is repeated the highest number of times in the series by definition • The mode of a distribution is the value at the point around which the items tend to be most heavily concentrated. • The main feature of mode is that it is the size of that item which has the maximum number frequency. 1. Calculation of mode in a series of individual observations: • The value occurring maximum number of times are the modal values. Example1. Find the mode of the following data relating to the weights of a sample of experimental animals S.No. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Weight 10 11 10 12 12 11 9 8 11 11
- 3. Weight No. of animals 8 1 9 1 10 2 11 4 12 1 13 1 • Since the item 11 occurs the maximum number of times i.e. 4 times, the modal value is 11. • If two values have the maximum frequency, the series is bimodal. 2. Calculation of mode in a discrete series. • Mode can be determined by looking to that variable around which the items are most heavily concentrated. Value 6 8 10 12 14 16 18 20 22 24 Frequency 20 30 40 40 55 60 55 20 15 25 • In the above data modal value is 16, because it occurs the maximum no. of times i.e. 60 times
- 4. • However, the values on the either side of 16 have also large frequencies. • In such cases, it is desirable to prepare a grouping table and an analysis table. • Grouping Table has six columns. Frequencies are added in two’s or three’s • In column 1, maximum frequency is marked. • In column 2, frequencies are added in two’s (1+2, 3+4, 5+6……). • In column 3, frequencies are added in two’s leaving the first frequency (2+3, 4+5, 6+7…). • In column 4, frequencies are added in three’s (1+2+3, 4+5+6, 7+8+9…). • In column 5, frequencies are added in three’s leaving the first frequency (2+3+4, 5+6+7, 8+9+10,….). • In column 6, frequencies are added in three’s leaving the first two frequencies (3+4+5, 6+7+8, 9+10+11,….). • Mark the maximum frequency in each column. • Prepare the analysis table to find out the exact value of the modal class.

- 7. 2. Calculation of mode in a discrete series. Mode can be calculated by the formula: 𝑀𝑜𝑑𝑒 = 𝐿 + 𝑓1 − 𝑓0 2𝑓1 − 𝑓𝑜 − 𝑓2 × 𝑖 L= Lower limit of the modal class f0= frequency of the class preceding modal class f1= frequency of modal class f2= frequency of the class succeeding modal class. i= Class interval
- 8. Here modal class is 30-60. L= 30 f0=21 f1= 51 f2= 35 i= 10 Mode= 30+(51-21/2*51-21-35)10 =30+6.52 =36.52 Classes Frequency 0-10 5 10-20 21 20-30 51 30-40 35 40-50 18 50-60 30
