## Step 1: Concept Introduction

A variable is a type of data and it can be of qualitative, quantitative discrete, or quantitative continuous type based on the given data in statistics.

## Step 2: Explanation

A qualitative variable is one that assigns categories to the variable as a value. The variable gender, for example, is a qualitative variable since it assigns male or female categories to the variable gender.

A quantitative discrete variable is one that assigns values that has a definite number of values. Quantitative discrete variables include things like the number of students in a class and the number of days in a month.

A quantitative continuous variable is one that assigns values that have an infinite number of possible values. A quantitative continuous variable is, for example, the weight of students in a class or the distance between two cities.

"Number of times per week" is the variable in the given question.

As a week has a definite number of days which is 7, the given data is a quantitative discrete variable.
