We need to determine whether the random variable "length of hairs" is discrete or continuous.
Discrete random variables take on values that are restricted to defined separated values, for example: integers or counts.
Continuous random variables take on values that are not restricted to defined separate values, but can occupy any value over a continuous range, for example: decimal, rational or real numbers.
The length of hairs can take on decimal values such as 2.75 cm.
The random variable is then continuous.
Result:
Continuous.
