Problem 3CQQ

Earthquake Depths Data Set 16 includes depths (km) of the sources of earthquakes. Are these values discrete or continuous?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Step1:

Given the data Set 16 includes depths (km) of the sources of earthquakes.

These values are continuous because they can be fractions of a kilometer whereas discrete values must be whole numbers. We obtain discrete data by counting and continuous data by measurements. Depth of these earthquake sources was measured, not counted.
