# MODE.MULT

The MODE.MULT function in Excel calculates the multiple most frequently occurring values in a dataset. It is useful for finding more than one mode in a set of data, which can be beneficial for statistical analysis and identifying common occurrences.

## Syntax

=MODE.MULT(`number1`, `[number2]`, ...)

When seeking to uncover multiple modes within a dataset, Excel's MODE.MULT function is your go-to tool. It facilitates the identification of more than one most frequently occurring value, offering insights into the distribution and patterns present in the data at hand. This feature proves invaluable in scenarios where a dataset exhibits several dominant values, shedding light on common occurrences and aiding in statistical analysis.

## Examples

Suppose you have a list of exam scores: 85, 90, 85, 75, 90, 85, 80, 75, 90, 75. You want to find the multiple most frequently occurring scores. The MODE.MULT formula would be: =MODE.MULT(85, 90, 85, 75, 90, 85, 80, 75, 90, 75). This will return 85, 90, and 75 as the modes since they occur the most frequently in the dataset.

Consider a scenario where you have sales figures for a product in different regions: 100, 120, 100, 150, 120, 110, 100, 120, 110. You wish to determine the multiple most common sales figures. The MODE.MULT formula would be: =MODE.MULT(100, 120, 100, 150, 120, 110, 100, 120, 110). This will reveal that 100 and 120 are the modes since they appear most frequently across the various regions.

## Notes

The MODE.MULT function in Excel returns an array of the most frequently occurring values, allowing for the identification of multiple modes within a dataset. It is suitable for situations where there are several values that occur with the same highest frequency.

## Questions

Can the MODE.MULT function handle multiple ranges of cells for mode calculation?

Yes, the MODE.MULT function in Excel can process multiple ranges of cells or individual numbers for calculating the multiple modes in a dataset. You can input up to 255 arguments to include in the analysis.

What does the MODE.MULT function return if there are no repeated values in the dataset?

If there are no repeated values in the dataset, the MODE.MULT function will return the #N/A error, indicating that there are no multiple most frequently occurring values to report.

How does the MODE.MULT function differ from the MODE.SNGL function?

While the MODE.SNGL function in Excel returns only a single most frequently occurring value, the MODE.MULT function goes a step further by identifying and listing all the multiple most frequently occurring values in a dataset. This key distinction allows for a more comprehensive analysis of data with repeated values.
