Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hint: the absolute value of the difference between x and 43.6 is less than or equal to the tolerance

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What does tolerance mean?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1"tolerance of 0.1" means that the value of x will be no more than 43.6 + 0.1, and no less than 43.6  0.1 basically, the tolerance gives you an upper bound and a lower bound for the possible x values

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so our inequality is x  43.6 <= 0.1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1think about what this statement means x  43.6 <= 0.1 x  43.6 represents the distance between x and 43.6. the inequality means that x will be no more than 0.1 units away from 43.6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because x has to be either 43.6 or .1+ or  43.6. The tolerance means it has to be in that range??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1"tolerance of 0.1" means that the maximum value of x is 43.6 + 0.1 = 43.7 the minimum value of x is 43.6  0.1 = 43.5 that's why "0.1" is the tolerance value
