English term or phrase: inch marks
The difference is that in a continuous distribution, there can be any number of intermediate values (i.e. in the case of the ball rolling, it could stop at the inch mark, half inch marks, the quarter inch marks, etc.) The increments of measurement could, theorically, be infinitely small and thus there are an infinite number of continuous values.
xxxExpression
graduation en pouces
Explanation:
Sur une règle, les graduations servent à repérer les dimensions à mesurer.
Vu le sens, on peut tout aussi bien utiliser les graduations en cm, 1/cm, mm, etc: l'idée est de suggérer la continuité des nombres décimaux à partir de la division d'intervalles
