    Default Getting the mode from a data set

    trying to make a script that makes a list of random numbers and then outputs the mean, median, and mode of the list of numbers.
    I'm currently stuck at mode part... stuck at a hash table with little to no idea how to accomplish it... any helpful hints?
    Java Code:
    public static int mode(int x[]) {
            for (int i = 1; i <= x.length - 1; i++) {
                HashSet<Integer> set = new HashSet<Integer>();
                if(set.contains(x[i]))
                    ???;
                else
                    set.add(x[i]);
                }
        } //end method mode
    the way I'm thinking of right now would require way too many variables and just overall makes my brain hurt thinking about it.

    Default Re: Getting the mode from a data set

    Can you explain what "mode" is?

    One item about your code. If you create a HashSet (line 3) it will be empty.
