There can be two modes in a data set. For example, in the data set {0,1,2,3,3,4,5,5,9}, there are two modes: 3 and 5.

No, because sometimes sets of data can have different numbers and other sets of data can have modes in them.

The middle value in a data set is the median. If there are an even number of values in the set, you average the middle two values to get the median.

The median in a set of data, would be the middle item of the data string... such as: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 the Median of this set of data would be: 4

The median of a set of data is the "middle" value. Whenever there is an even number of values in a data set, you take the middle two numbers, add them together, and divide by two. For cases when the two middle numbers happen to be the same, you still add them up and divide by two. The key point is just that the answer will be the same as both the numbers.

It is called bimodal.

Yes there can be more than 2 modes in a data set. It is called multimodal.

A bi-modal data set is a data set that has two modes. In the data set 1, 2, 2, 3, 4, 4, 5 the mode is 2 AND 4. So it is a bi-modal data set. Hope that helps.

mode is a set of data that occurs most

a data set with two modes in is sometimes called "bimodal." Multi-modal, always reflects the contributions of each of the data values in the group!

bimodal

It means the data set has 2 modes.

The mode, or one of the modes.

Nothing particular. One of the deficiencies of the mode is that a set of data can have none, one or many modes.

Data sets only have modes if at least one number repeats.
