** Definition of Continuous Data**

- The data that is continuous (without breaks) in a selected range is known as Continuous Data.

**More about Continuous Data**

- Continuous data is the opposite of discrete data.
- Continuous data will have infinite number of possible values within the selected range.
- Line graphs and histograms are used to represent continuous data.

**Examples of Continuous Data**

- The height of a boy over time is an example of continuous data.
- Varying temperature from maximum to minimum point on a particular day is a continuous data.

**Solved Example on Continuous Data**
