Tell if the following random variable is discrete or continuous: the number of calls made on a cell phone in one day? Solution The number of calls made on a cell phone can be either 0,1,2,3 and so on. But it cannot be 1.5 1.3 or 2.33 for that matter. Thus this random variable takes only discrete values. Hence, it is discrete.. Please rate me. Require ratings. Thank You.
