Examples of continuous variation are anything that can be measured such as, shoe size, height, weight, hand span and diameter of limpit shells. Discontinuous variation however is when there is a clear cut difference such as different colours or different species.

Sure! The definition of Laplace transform involves the integral of a function, which always makes discontinuous continuous.

Continuous variation is a variation that is distributable; under a normal curve. Height is an example of this with all heights being along a continuum of heights within populations, at least. This distribution of traits is usually controlled by many alleles in a additive fashion. Polygenic. Discontinuous variation is of one trait, allele, or the other. Blood groups are an example of this. A, B , O. You can only have two alleles here, so AA and AB and OO and AO, AB etc. are the expressed ( less the recessive O, except homozygous ) traits. These are single variations based on one allele and are not distributable along a continuum.

An infinite sum of continuous functions does not have to be continuous. For example, you should be able to construct a Fourier series that converges to a discontinuous function.

Hair colour is continuous because there is a continual range of values when it comes to hair colour

It is a continuous variation which is not by birth. It is an injury which will slowly change so a scar is a continuous variation.

Continuous variation is variation without fixed values such as height or shoe size. Discontinuous variation has fixed values/catagories such as eye colour or hair colour. Hope this helps!

I think it is continuous because you can measure the length of an hair, so to me the best answer is continuous variation.

Continuous or might be discontinuous.

A chart would be good for continuous and discontinuous data, as for the environmental variation would be a diagram.

no, as a flower is either for example blue or white, and cannot be something in between, thus its discontinuous variation.

yup!!!!! I know this one it's continuous and discontinuous radiation
