## Example: Find Statistical Model in R

# create a vector of marks1 marks1 <- c(56, 88, 75, 87, 73, 69, 47, 59, 61, 92) # define mode() function mode = function() { # calculate mode of marks1 return(names(sort(-table(marks1)))[1]) } # call mode() function mode()

**Output**

[1] "47"

In the above example, we have created a function named `mode()`

to calculate the mode of the `marks1` vector.

Inside the function, we have used the `table()`

function to create a categorical representation of data with the variable names and the frequency in the form of a table.

We will sort `marks1` in descending order and will return the **1st** value from the sorted values.

Finally, we have called the `mode()`

function and it returned the most common number in `marks1` i.e. **47**
