Problem 16BSC

determine whether the given values are from a discrete or continuous data set.

First President George Washington was 188 cm tall.

Answer :

Step 1 of 1:

Discrete data represent counts and are always whole numbers.

Continuous data represent measured quantities which can assume infinitely many values on a given interval.

Now we have to find it is discrete data or continuous data.

Given First President George Washington was 188 cm tall.

So the height of a person does not always assume whole number values.

Hence,it is continuous.
