[2,2,4,4,6,6] 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 2 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.Thus: {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. Hope it helps.
