Well since this is the nonweb discussion forum I guess this belongs here...
Has anyone any ideas how to write a Pseudocode algorithm for calculating the mode of a set of 10 numbers using arrays?
I've worked out bits and pieces here and there of it ut I can't seem to get a logical "program" out at the end of it... so if anyone out there is good a bit of help would be much appreciated :)
5 TD to anyone that can do it :)

What do you need it for? If it's homework, we don't do that sort of thing.

No, writing a VB maths application that does numerous things, and following College I learnt to do everything in steps  Flowchart/Pseudocode  then into the designated language.
Functions such as graphing, averaging (Bar mode!), triganomic (sp?) aren't too difficult as linear mathematical commands can be used and/or constants defined. Unfortunately, I've never been good with Arrays (Which it would seem I need to be using here) in any language, so that's why I posted here.
Maybe I ought to rethink the way I type posts if I come across as an early teenager.... Or did I miss an offensive comment?

Define array length variable for size of array and set it to 9 (this will allow you to change the size of the array if you ever need to; since 9 encompasses 0 to 9, which is 10 numbers)
Define array of size array length variable
Define second twodimensional array of undetermined length and width 1; your 0 column will be your value, and your 1 column will be your frequency
Loop from 0 to array length variable,
 assign value to each array element (or however you want to assign the values to the array; they can come from a database, whatever)
end your loop
Loop from 0 to array length variable again
 check to see if array element value matches any preassigned second array (0) values
 if there is a match in second array (0) values, the corresponding second array (1) value increments by 1
 if there is no match, then a new row for your second array will be created with values of array element value for (0) value and 1 for (1) value (since it's the first occurrence of the array)
end your loop
Sort your twodimensional array in descending order by (1) column
Display first (0) element in sorted array as a mode
Display any subsequent (0) elements in sorted array where (1) element = first (1) element in sorted array as modes as well.
This is about as close as I can write it to making sense without actually putting any programming into it.

Thanks a lot TheGAME, I was missing a two dimentional array and was instead trying to recreate a similar effect with two separate arrays... which obviously was working very well!
TD awarded (I hope)

Yes, I did get them. Thanks, man.
