The mode value is the value that appears the most number of times.
R does not have a function to calculate the mode. However, we can create our own function to find it.
If we take a look at the values of the
wt variable (from the
mtcars data set), we will see that the numbers
3.440 are often shown:
Sorted observation of wt (weight)
Instead of counting it ourselves, we can use the following code to find the mode:
From the example above, we now know that the number that appears the most number of times in mtcars wt variable is 3.44 or 3.440 lbs.
