Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i guessed...what is the correct equation with delta?? .01 < x^24 < .01 3.99<x^2 < 4.01 sqrt(3.99) < x < sqrt(4.01)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0delta < x2 < delta 2delta < x < 2+delta set them equal sqrt(3.99) = 2delta > delta = 2sqrt(3.99) = .002501 sqrt(4.01) = 2+delta > delta = sqrt(4.01)  2 = .002498
