### 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) $$64$$

The correct answer is B.

### Explanation:

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

 Scores 4 7 8 11 13 8 Frequency 3 5 2 7 2 1

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

• Kennedy Ekuhule

The answer is 49 because 7 is most occurring frequency then if squared is 49

How do we get 121

• Karlmuller

121

Mode = score with highest frequency $$= 11.$$
Square of $$11 = 121$$
• Mode = score with highest frequency $$= 11.$$
Square of $$11 = 121$$
