How to Find the Mode from a Grouped Frequency Table (Mathematics Lesson)

Finding the Mode Group from a Grouped Frequency Table

We can find which group in a grouped frequency table is the mode.

How to Find the Mode Group from a Grouped Frequency Table

Finding the mode group from a grouped frequency table is easy.

An Example Question

The grouped frequency table below shows the test scores for a class of students.



What group of test scores is the mode?
Step 1
Find the largest number in the Frequency column. In our example, the largest number in the frequency table is 4.



Step 2
Read off the entry in the Score column in the same row. This is the mode group.



The mode group of the test scores is 6 - 10.
