Question details

Discrete vs. Continuous Random Variable: You will notice that there is most likely no mode for the sample data set presented in Table 1. The reason there are not multiple instances of exactly the same value of the random variable is due to the continuous nature of the random variable. Continuous random variables are random variables whose value can take on infinitely many values-the value of which is typically governed by the precision of the device used to measure the random variable. A discrete random variable, on the other hand, is a random variable that can only take on a finite value. The number of people in a car is an example of a discrete random variable. 3. Find the mean, median and mode of the stream flows if we use a flow meter whose precision is +5 Cfs. For example, for the stream flow for March 1, 2018 would be 855 Cfs and the stream flow for March 22, 2018 would be 1375 Cfs. a.
