# Continuous random variables | Statistics

Continuous random variables are variables that can assume any value within a range. Examples of continuous random variables are the length of a person, the weight of a train, the diameter of a nail hat and the sales for a company.

A continuous random variable can assume an unlimited number of values in a range. Continuous random variables are described and interpreted in a different way compared to discrete random variables, in that it is such a big difference to them. Continuous random variables are normally presented in a normal distribution.
