A continuous variable is a type of variable in statistics and mathematics that can take on any real value within a given range. Unlike discrete variables, which can only take distinct, separate values, continuous variables can assume an infinite number of values within a specific interval.

Examples of continuous variables include height, weight, temperature, time, and distance. These variables can be measured with great precision and can theoretically take on any value within a given range. Continuous variables are often represented using real numbers and are typically measured using instruments or tools that provide a high level of precision.

In contrast, discrete variables, such as the number of cars in a parking lot or the number of students in a class, can only take on distinct, separate values and cannot be measured with the same level of precision as continuous variables.
