Abstract: The following work shows how the first digit frequency in a group of numbers in certain real-life situations can be explained using basic algebraic continuous real-valued functions. For instance, the first digits frequency of the numbers representing the change in human growth can be understood better by looking at the square root function in a particular way. In addition, an analysis of basic discrete functions was done by approximating a discrete function to a continuous one.
