The number that occurs most often in a data set is called the *mode*.

Example:
*Find the mode of the numbers 2, 7, 13, 2 and 5.*

The number 2 occurs twice while all the other numbers only occur once. The answer is therefore **2**.

It is possible to have more than one mode if multiple numbers occur the same number of times.

Example:
*Find the mode of the numbers 1, 1, 5, 3, 7 and 5.*

In this case there are two modes because both 1 and 5 occur twice while the rest of the numbers only occur once. This means that the answer is **1** and **5**.

The tool calculates the mode by counting how many times each of the entered values occur. It presents the result as a text where is says what the most common values are and how many times they were found. Note that it is possible to use decimal values, and comma is a valid decimal mark, so it is not enough to separate the numbers with just a comma. However, if each comma is followed by a space it should work fine.
