Hi, I am working on the following problem and need some assistance:
For what range of values of x will the computed value of f(x) given below have large relative error? Assume 0 x 100
f(x) = 10 -
I know that catostrophic error can occur when subtracting two numbers of similar magnitude, so in our case would we present the most relative error when x is equal to 0 and 100? Or do I need a wider range of numbers?
