I do not really know, I guess I'll leave it as it is. Too much time has been spent on it. There are other problems to solve. Thank you for support, bobbym!
We have to know what error we have from k terms to know when it is smaller than epsilon. Do we use the alternating series estimate of the error or matching digits?
Epsilon is given:
What do you want to use for epsilon, digits that match or the alternating error estimate?
The table should be like this:
sorry for an ambiguous post, you did not understand me right, in the previous post by "the actual error" I meant they do not want any error, they just require to specify accuracy (10^-3, 10^-4, 10^-5, 10^-6).
yep, they are. ((
No idea. Maybe because it is short and simple!?))
We can improve that easily. Are they still forcing people to use that language?
thank you, bobbym, it is quite clear now!
So the error from summing the first 3 terms is less than 6.78168402E-6.
Yeah, seems to be clear so far. And what i see is that the first term = sum #1, and the following terms correspond to alternating errors from the table kindly provided by you.
Because we do not need to subtract anything! Please hold on the answer is simple but to write it up takes time.
how come it can be easier than subtracting two numbers?))
