Math Worksheets, Activities and Tutorial

Statement of Meaning
Mode represents the most “Popular”

The Mode is the number that appears the most frequently within a set of number. This is your Mode

Example:

14, 18, 21, 25, 44, 44, 68

The Mode = 44

To find the Mode in any group of numbers, simply arrange the numbers in order first from least to greatest.

Example

25, 18, 14, 21, 68, 44, 44

In ordered form =

14, 18, 21, 25, 44, 44, 68

Now simply find the number that is repeated the most in the ordered set of numbers.

In this example, it's 44

Your mode = 44

Statement of Meaning

Range refers to the distance “Between”

The Range refers to the distance between the highest and lowest value within a set of numbers.

Example

5, 12, 15, 24, 26, 31

Range = 26

How to find the “Range” based on the example above ?

First arrange all the numbers in an ordered form from the lowest to highest ( least to greatest )

5, 12, 15, 24, 26, 31

Look for the lowest and highest numbers within the group.

In this case 5 and 31

Lastly find the difference that represents these 2 numbers

31 – 5 = 26

The Range is 26

This example shows you how to find the "Mode" ( Popular) number in ranges.
