This depends on what you are observing, but since number and amount are both measurements of quantity, they are somewhat interchangeable. Observations usually deal with both, because an observation is the action of observing something to collect information, and most information has to be quantified in order to be useful. And when quantifying something, a number or an amount has to be used.
Observations that deal with descriptions that cannot be expressed in numbers are called qualitative observations.
An observation that deals with a number or amount is called a quantitative observation. An observation that deals with descriptions is called a qualitative observation.
Those are "quantitative" observations. Numbers, sizes, areas, dimensions, volumes, speeds, distances, weights, masses, temperatures, voltages, densities, costs, etc. are 'quantities'.
Qualitative (quantitative are observations that can be expressed numerically)
Quantative or Quantifiable Measurements. You can take some measure and get a number out. Length, Temperature, Area etc. As opposed to Qualititive Measure - Happiness, anger etc you can't take a ruler to someones mood.
Deal with a number, or amount.
There are two types of observation. There is what is referred to as the qualitative observation and what is referred to as quantitative observation. Qualitative observations do not deal with numbers, but rather details of an experiment per se. An example would be how a precipitate looks that was formed from a reaction. Quantitative observations deal with numbers; an example would be the amount of a substance (in grams) formed from a completed reaction.
