I am having a hard time understanding the difference between discrete and continuous data...i have read the textbook definition and i have looked online, and i just cannot comprehend it :( help?
discrete, is whole numbers like (0, 1, 2, 3, 4). they are countable.
continuous is not whole numbers (o.976, 1.456, 2.2, 3.4) They are not whole numbers, and they are usually used when measuring something like time of a movie, length of a car.
there is lots of examples look some up on you tube
