A discrete variable is a variable that has a certain set limit. For example, a ten point scale can ONLY have the variables 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, & 10. 2.8 would not work on a discrete variable ten point scale. Height is an example of a continuous variable, or one that has an infinite possibility.
