  • @ksalokranjan – ah, but if I have sufficient numbers of counted items, and if the counts have sufficient levels, then I can treat them as continuous.
    Likewise, if I have temperature readings (let’s choose deg C as it has a wider coverage range per degree) that I stop the digits at the whole number level (no decimals), then I might only end up…[Read more]

  • @ksalokranjan – as Robert quotes, all measurements are inherently discrete due to at some point needing to put a limit on decimals. However, your query postulated that the data units are continuous/discrete. This would be wrong, as the units “degrees” for temperature is clearly continuous (infinite possible values), but the data (recorded…[Read more]
