DEFINITIONS
Discrete data are restricted to defined separated values with a finite or countable number of different possible values, for example integers or counts.
Continuous data are not restricted to defined separate values, but can occupy any value over a continuous range, for example decimal, rational or real numbers.
SOLUTION
R=temperature of turkey meat
The temperature can take on decimal values (such at 10.75 C) and thus the random variable is continuous.
Result:
Continuous.
