# Frequency Tables: Examples

These lessons help High School students learn how to use the frequency table to organize data, with video lessons, examples and solutions.

In a survey, people usually collect lots of data, also known as raw data. Raw data can be arranged in a frequency table.

A frequency table shows the number of times each value occurs. The mode is the data with the highest frequency.

Example:
The following data shows the test marks obtained by a group of students.

Draw a frequency table for the data and find the mode.

 6 7 7 1 3 2 8 6 8 2 4 4 9 10 2 6 3 1 6 6 9 8 7 5 7 10 8 1 5 8

Solution:
Go through the data; make a stroke in the tally column for each occurrence of the data. The number of strokes will be the frequency of the data. The mode is 6 and 8 since they both have the highest frequency of 5.
