    Please give example(s) of multimodal distribution

    Please give example(s) of multimodal distribution. Let's say 3 bell-shape curves are close to each other. I could not think of one example

    If the data is quantitative, multimodal, and symmetric, should we use mean or mode to find the center?

    Thank you

    Hey angelme.

    With your question about the center, have you considered non-parametric statistics (like the median)? How skewed is your distribution?
