# T.i.P.S.

• The mode is the number that appears most often in a set of data.

The frequency table would first use certain categories that can be determined based on the data and are usually ranges (ex. 50-59) and would be represented in the first column of the table. The second column of the table would show the frequency of that range. For example, if the data contained numbers such as 52, 54, 57, and 59, there would be 4 pieces of data in the 50-59 category. Therefore, the frequency is 4.

The third and final column of the table is the relative frequency, which is determined by taking the frequency of that category, divided by the total pieces of data. The result is a decimal, which will in turn become a percent for the percent bar graph. The percent bar graph will portray the frequency from the frequency table, but in bar graph format.

• Some 6th graders at Hill Middle School participated in a reading contest. The number of books read by the students is shown below. Create a frequency table that shows how many books students read.
