I need to include an equation that contain Statistical mode.I need to find the most repeated value in a set and also need to include range of that set.In the equation bellow,i am trying to replace max and min with mode.

enter image description here

When i typed \mode just like \max or\min,Latex is giving error.So how can I write an emaquation containing Statistical mode with limits?


If I understand well what you want, just load amsmath (if not already done) and add to your preamble:

  • yes it worked,but now the 1<i<TN is not under mode – user6745741 Apr 18 '17 at 13:37
  • Sorry, I forgot this detail. Use the * version: \DeclareMathOperator*. – Bernard Apr 18 '17 at 13:45
  • completely solved my problem. – user6745741 Apr 18 '17 at 13:48

The set of predefined functions (like \max and \min) in LatTeX is rather restricted. You can roll your own by using a recent version of the amsmath package:


After this declarions in the preamble of the document, you can use them like \max and \min.
