posted by on .

classify the following as discrete or continuous random variables:

a) the time it takes to run a marathon- i think that it is discrete

c) a pair of dice is rolled and the sum to appear on the dice is recorded- i think that it is discrete

d) the length of a broad jump- i think that it is continuous.

  • statistics, are my calculations correct? - ,

    a) If length is continuous, wouldn't time also be continuous?

    b) The fractions can get smaller and smaller (e.g., 1 and 1*10^-9)

    Otherwise, I think you are correct.

    For your own safety, it is better not to use your whole name.
