What are the differences between a mean and mode?

These two terms are often used interchangeably, but they actually have different meanings. A mode is simply the most common number in a group of numbers.

For example, if you toss a coin 100 times, then heads would be considered the mode because it occurred more than any other result. A mean is calculated by adding all of the numbers together and dividing by how many there were.

The word “mean” means average or typical. A mean is calculated by adding all of the numbers together and dividing by how many there were. There are three types of intervals: major, minor, and perfect.

Major intervals occur when a note moves one semitone higher than another note. Minor intervals appear when a note goes up two semitones from another note. Perfect is found in between major and minor notes; they can be either ascending (three semitones) or descending (four semitones).

When you calculate the interval between any two given notes it will always come out as an even number because we’re counting only whole steps here – no half steps!
