Set A, B, and C consist of the following elements: A {0, 3, 4, 2, 0, 4, 7, 8, 4, 17} B {20, 12, 7, 9, 5, 7, 11, 5, 68} C {1.5, 0, 1.5}.
If Z is defined as the sum of modes of sets A, B, and C, what is the value of Z?

My guess will be 2. It's clear that the mode of A is 4. I'm not entirely sure how to take the mode of B if there are two 5 and two 7. So I'll pretend it's 6. The mode of C should be 0, as I know that a uniform distribution has the same mode, median and mean. So 4+(6)+0 = 2. I hope someone else can enlighten me on this question.

If Z is defined as the sum of modes of sets A, B, and C, what is the value of Z? A mode is a number that has the highest frequency in a data set. So in Set A.. 4 occurs maximum times... in B its 7 and 5..C has no mode... so sum=+475=8.

I hope below solution helps : Mode of a set of numbers is the element in the set which occurs maximum number of times: In set A, 4 is the mode. In set B, both 7 and 5 are the modes (It is a bimodal set) In set C, there is no mode. Sum of the modes = 4 + (5) + (7) = 8. Hope this is all right!

Answer is 8 Mode for A: 4 Mode for B: 7 and 5 Mode for C:0 Thus sum is 8
