## Key Differences: digital vs discrete

- 1
**Digital**refers to a system that uses numerical values, while**analogic**refers to a system that uses continuous values. - 2
**Discrete**refers to something that is separate or distinct, while**analogic**refers to something that is continuous.

## Effective Usage of digital, discrete

- 1Technology: Use
**digital**to describe electronic devices that use numerical values, and**analogic**to describe devices that use continuous values. - 2Mathematics: Use
**discrete**to describe values that are separate and distinct, and**analogic**to describe values that are continuous. - 3Science: Use
**digital**to describe data that is stored in binary form, and**analogic**to describe data that is stored in continuous form.

Remember this!

The antonyms of **analogic** are **digital** and **discrete**. Use **digital** to describe electronic devices that use numerical values, and **analogic** to describe devices that use continuous values. Use **discrete** to describe values that are separate and distinct, and **analogic** to describe values that are continuous. In science and mathematics, use these antonyms to describe data and values accurately.
