Given the scores: \(4, 7, 8, 11, 13, 8\) with corresponding frequencies: \(3, 5, 2, 7, 2, 1\)...


Question

Given the scores: \(4, 7, 8, 11, 13, 8\) with corresponding frequencies: \(3, 5, 2, 7, 2, 1\) respectively. Find the square of the mode.

Options

A) \(49\)

B) \(121\)

C) \(25\)

D) \(64\)

Explanation:

The mode is the value that occurs most frequently in a given set of data.
Mode = score with highest frequency \(= 11.\)

Scores47811138
Frequency352721

The highest frequency is 7 and 11 is the number with that frequency i.e. the mode.
Square of \(11 = 121\)
