The age of each bug

Step-by-step explanation:

Discrete variables are variables which are counted and can only take on whole number values such as 1, 2, 3…,. For example, the number of students in a class; the number of legs of a spider.

Continuous variables are variables that are measured and can take on a whole range of values such as 1.0, 1.1, 1.2…,. For example, the wingspan of a bug, the length of leaves; the exact age of students in a class.

Though age is a continuous variable if the exact age is required as it can take up a wide range of values such as 2.5 years; 2.3 years, 5.8 days etc,. However, in some instances, it can be rounded up to whole number values in years, months, weeks or even days.

For example, the age of a bug in days could be 1 day, 2 days, or 14 days.

The age of a student who is 12.2 years can be given as 12 years.
