You go to the supermarket and purchase three cans of soup (19 ounces tomato bisque, 14.1 ounces lentil, and 19 ounces Italian wedding), two packages of nuts (walnuts and peanuts), four different kinds of vegetable (broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, and carrots), and two desserts (16 ounces pistachio ice cream and 32 ounces chocolate chip cookies). Name data sets that are quantitative discrete, quantitative continuous, and qualitative.
One Possible Solution: The three cans of soup, two packages of nuts, four kinds of vegetables and two desserts are quantitative discrete data because you count them. The weights of the soups (19 ounces, 14.1 ounces, 19 ounces) are quantitative continuous data because you measure weights as precisely as possible. Types of soups, nuts, vegetables and desserts are qualitative data because they are categorical.
