Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wouldn't it be more accurate to say : while something >epsilon or something <epsilon:? That's how I solved it anyway. while epsilon > something > epsilon: runs but always gives me the first guess.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You are right, I think bwCA made a slight mistake while typing. His test should be: while abs(something) > epsilon: keep doing stuff The idea is to continue until we have a value close enough to the exact solution.
