A digital quantity example is provided by any digital microprocessor display where a discrete number is provided and the actual value is an irrational number.

Some examples are the computer display of the values of pi, the square root of 2, the quotient of 3/19, or any other irrational number.

A computer basically works with the integers 0 and 1, so it is a "digital" machine (it cannot deal with 3/19, or pi, etc with perfect accuracy).
