The mode is the number that occurs the most frequently in a data set. For example mode of the set {2, 3, 4, 4} is 4.

Set can have more than one mode, for example set {2, 2, 3, 3, 5} has two modes 2 and 3.

If every number in the set occurs an equal number of times, then the set has no mode. For example set {1, 2, 3} has no mode.

For example:

{1, 2, 4, 8, 8, 8, 9, 10, 10, 10, 11} - has two modes 8 and 10;

{1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6} - has no mode, since every number in the set occurs an equal number of times;

{2, 2, 4, 4, 6, 6} - has no mode, since every number in the set occurs an equal number of times.

P.S. The formula you are using is not correct.
