    How do you find the mode in central tendency if there are no repeating values?

    I had an exam today that asked to use central tendency, but there was no repeating vales. Example

    1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 19, 20, 21

    I'll give you a hint: there can be more than one mode in a distribution.

    I would have said that 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 19, 20, 21 are the modes, or that there are no modes.

    That is true, but what would the mode be with those numbers? Doesn't make sense.

    I have heard of that software, but it's very expensive.

    Haha I like the 21 modes. I would assume no mode.

    Reason it out. One step at a time.

    If just asked for central tendency, what about the mean (9.67) or median (7)?
