    discrete and continuous distribution

    I am just learning about discrete and continuous distribution. I have read the required text and have spent some time on line looking for help. What I need to do is write two brief scenarios: one that illustrates a discrete distribution and one that illustrates a continuous distribution. And I really do not understand how. Any help would be great. Thanks!

    Start by thinking of a random variable that is discrete and thinking of a random variable that is continuous.
