The techniques are different of course. For example, you can’t use t-tests or ANOVA if you can’t multiply/divide…

Hi Miner,

Thanks, and yes by Discrete I mean 'count data' only. I have also attached three more slides which i plan to show before i show 'mathematical operations slides'. Theses slides will describes the various data type with examples.

Hi Bev,

thanks for your reply but i am not sure if i understood correctly because i thought we could not determine the differences if the data type is Nominal, ordinal or binary. Can you enlighten me on this?

Thanks
