### What does discrete data mean in math?

The commonly used definition is that discrete data can only take
integer values. However, that definition is seriously flawed
because it depends on the measurement unit. For example, suppose
the data refer to the number of days taken to complete a selection
of tasks. The answers are clearly whole numbers.
But now consider what happens if you recode the data to how many
weeks. The experiment has not changed but many of the data will
have become fractions! Are they no longer...

### What is the difference between discrete and continuous graphs?

Discrete and Continuous Graph
This will be a very basic definition but understandable one
A graph is discrete when one (or both) of the variables has
discrete entries, its means that are entered number, without
decimal part, so the graph has no continuity, the trace will be
broken parts, not a single one.
beside a continuous graph is a graph where both variables are
continuous, it means that their field's are de Real number, so the
trace it's a continuous line.
Also we can...

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic

### Are integers discrete?

Yes, integers are discrete. Real and rational numbers have a
special property that we can find another one of them between any
two. This is what makes them NOT discrete. Between any two
integers, say 1 and 2, we cannot find another integer. They are
discrete.
Things we can count are discrete. For example, the number of
questions answered during the answerthon is discrete. Temperature
is not discrete.
