Like fun you are right. I found interesting example - length for example is continuous you can get any value 3 3.1 3.1235 3.12323455333
But if you measure the length in the centimeters only (3cm, 4cm, 5cm) it is a discrete variable.
the number of children is discrete, you can't have 3.123 children in the class.
Im researching some articles and compare this woth wiki. Best answer i found in this article https://whatsadifference.com/differe...nuous-variable
By the way romsek you was right. And thanx for help.
There are some concepts that are not understandable if a person's background is not sufficient to support the explanation.
This is one such example. Here is a simple example:
Suppose that $\mathscr{D}$ is the set of all rational numbers in $[0,1]$ and $\mathscr{I}$ is the set of all irrational numbers in $[0,1]$
Now $\mathscr{D}$ is a discrete set while $\mathscr{I}~$ is a continuous set.
Now I fully understand if one does not follow that, but in fact that makes my point.
