# Statistics - Arithmetic Mode

Arithmetic Mode refers to the most frequently occurring value in the data set. In other words, modal value has the highest frequency associated with it. It is denoted by the symbol ${M_o}$ or Mode.

We're going to discuss methods to compute the Arithmetic Mode for three types of series:

## Individual Data Series

When data is given on individual basis. Following is an example of individual series:

 Items 5 10 20 30 40 50 60 70

## Discrete Data Series

When data is given alongwith their frequencies. Following is an example of discrete series:

 Items Frequency 5 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 2 5 1 3 12 0 5 7

## Continuous Data Series

When data is given based on ranges alongwith their frequencies. Following is an example of continous series:

 Items Frequency 0-5 5-10 10-20 20-30 30-40 2 5 1 3 12
