Mode \(\approx 3\) Median \(- 2\) Mean

Example:

Find the mode, if in distribution the median and mean are \(30\) and \(12\) respectively.

**Solution**:

Given that Median \(= 30\) and Mean \(= 12\)

To find the mode.

We know the mode can be determined using the empirical formula:

Mode \(\approx 3\) Median \(- 2\) Mean

Substituting the known values in the above formula, we have:

Mode \(\approx 3(30) - 2(12)\)

Mode \(\approx 90 - 24\)

Mode \(\approx 66\)

Therefore, the mode is \(66\) (approx.)
