The mode of a numerical data set is the value that occurs most frequently in the set. a. Determine the mode for the cadence data given in Exercise 73. b. For a categorical sample, how would you define the modal category? Reference exercise-73 The article “Can We Really Walk Straight?” (Amer. J. of Physical Anthropology, 1992: 19–27) reported on an experiment in which each of 20 healthy men was asked to walk as straight as possible to a target 60 m away at normal speed. Consider the following observations on cadence (number of strides per second): Use the methods developed in this chapter to summarize the data; include an interpretation or discussion wherever appropriate. [Note: The author of the article used a rather sophisticated statistical analysis to conclude that people cannot walk in a straight line and suggested several explanations for this.]

Answer Step 1 of 2 a) The number which appear most often in the dataset is called mode In the given dataset 93 is repeated more times than other numbers Hence Mode=93
