#### Worksheet Overview

There are several different types of averages.

An average is one number that represents a set of numbers.

The MODE or the MODAL VALUE is simply the most frequently occuring number.....the one that appears most often in a list.

Example

Find the MODE of this set of numbers:    5,  4,  8,  4,  3,  3,  8,  4,  1

The MODE is 4 because it occurs three times, which is more than any other number.
