# is distance discrete or continuous

Our idea of time, like our idea of distance, is that there is no smallest unit. S k i l l There is nothing to count. e) A dozen eggs. A discrete set is something that can be counted. This distinction between what is continuous and what is discrete makes for two aspects of number; namely number as discrete units -- the natural numbers -- and number as the measure of things that are. As a form, a sphere is discrete. continuous. Continuous. By and large, both discrete and continuous variable can be qualitative and quantitative. Now, half a chair is not also a chair; half a tree is not also a tree; and half an atom is surely not also an atom. a)  Into which parts could 6 pencils be divided? That means that as we go from A to B, the line "continues" without a break. l)  The acceleration of a car as it goes from 0 to 60 mph. Since the length AB is continuous, not only could we take half of it, we could take any part we please -- a tenth, a hundredth, or a billionth. b) The distance from here to the Moon. continuous. a) A stack of coins Discrete. Discrete data is countable while continuous data is measurable. Our idea of time, like our idea of distance, is that there is no smallest unit. Continuous. We imagine that we could take any part. d) Applesauce. As volume, it is continuous. One person, two, three, four, and so on. made up of indivisible units. What is continuous has no limit to smallness. Discrete. We need them for measuring; for assigning a number to whatever is continuous. a box of chocolates -- it will always have a limit, namely one chocolate. Continuous. If we divided that, it would not be water any more! What do you think? Continuous. f) 60 minutes. This gives rise to the "fractions." We can imagine half of that distance, or a third, or a fourth, and so on. Problem 2. In contrast, a discrete variable over a particular range of real values is one for which, for any value in the range that the variable is permitted to take on, there is a positive minimum distance to the nearest other permissible value. Measuring the distance travelled by different cars using 1-liter of gasoline We say instead that it is a continuous whole. Discrete data is the type of data that has clear spaces between values. Tabulation of discrete data, done against a single value, is called as an ungrouped frequency distribution. Common examples are variables that must be integers, non-negative integers, positive integers, or only the integers 0 and 1. Discrete. But consider the distance between A and B. But as a form, a circle is discrete; half a circle is not also a circle. What do you think? e) A dozen eggs. Our idea of time, like our idea of distance, is that there is no smallest unit. We do not need fractions for counting. Continuous data is one that falls on a continuous sequence. Continuous! And we have seen that we can always express in words the ratio of any two of them. And most important, any part of AB, however small, will still be a length. On the other hand, continuous data includes any value within range. Continuous. That is why, when we do something with discrete and continuous data, actually we do something with numerical data. Discrete. Or was each new form discrete? Surely, the names of anything are discrete. What is more, a collection of discrete units will have only certain parts (Lesson 1). Continuous! Half a name makes no sense. Any parts. A discrete unit is indivisible, in the sense that if it is divided, then what results will not be that unit -- it will not have that same name -- any more. Continuous. Continuous. (Half a thought?). A discrete unit is indivisible, in the sense that if it is divided, then what results will not be that unit -- it will not have that same name -- any more. b) Into which parts could 6 meters be divided? Discrete. Identify whether the experiment involves a discrete or a continuous random variable. Our idea of time, like our idea of distance, is that there is no smallest unit. n)  The evolution of biological forms; that is, from fish to man n)   (according to the theory). The number of permitted values is either finite or countably infinite. Overlapping or mutually exclusive classification, such as 10-20, 20-30,.., etc. The difference between discrete and continuous data can be drawn clearly on the following grounds: Discrete data is the type of data that has clear spaces between values. You cannot take a third of them. Discrete Data. We can imagine half of that distance, or a third, or a fourth, and so on. Discrete data is countable while continuous data is measurable. It is not a number of anything. Will lengths have the same ratio to one another as natural numbers?
