# Mode in R (Example)

In this tutorial you’ll learn how to compute the mode of a numeric vector in the R programming language.

## Example Data

In this example, we’ll compute the mode of the following numeric vector:

x <- c(6, 8, 4, 3, 9, 1, 3, 5, 2) # Create example vector |

x <- c(6, 8, 4, 3, 9, 1, 3, 5, 2) # Create example vector

## Example: Calculate Mode in R

The basic installation of the R programming language does not provide a function for the computation of the mode. For that reason, we need to install and load the DescTools package first:

install.packages("DescTools") # Install DescTools package library("DescTools") # Load DescTools package |

install.packages("DescTools") # Install DescTools package library("DescTools") # Load DescTools package

Now, we can use the Mode function of the DescTools package as follows:

Mode(x) # Compute mode # 3 |

Mode(x) # Compute mode # 3

The mode of our example vector is 3.
