Okay so the homework is FROM physics, but its 100% math.
Q: Find the max possible error or (absolute) uncertainty for the following measurements --> 4.5 +/- .5 m + 1.5 +/- .5 m
So my first and only thought would be to add the uncertainties but there is no answer so I don't know.... i.e. in this case, .5 + .5 = 1.0m Therefore max possible uncertainty would be 1.0m ..
Can anyone confirm, deny, correct me ?
