A food mart sells apple bags by weight. The line plot shows the number of apple bags sold. Identify the mode.

 a. 2 lb b. 11 lb c. 9 lb d. 14 lb

#### Solution:

In a line plot, a number line is drawn in the range of the given data, then cross marks (x) are placed above the corresponding value on the number line for each piece of data.

In the line plot shown, the weights of the apple bags are shown along the number line and the number of cross marks above each weight indicates the number of apple bags sold.

The number that occurs most frequently in a data set is the mode of the data set.

11 lb is the mode.
[Because, most number of cross marks appear above 11 lb apple bags.]
