Hey,

I was reading a document about epsilon-delta proof when I reached a point I did not understand.

The document is http://www.ocf.berkeley.edu/~yosenl/...ilon-delta.pdf and my question is number 4, it starts on page 3.

On the beginning of page 4 they write :

"Notice that the right hand side is at the minimum when x + 3 is at itsmaximum. Since the maximum of x + 3 is 6, we know that

|x-2| < e/|x+3| < e/6"

How could that be true ? |x+3| is smaller than 6, therefor e/|x+3| should be bigger than e/6, Am I wrong ?

Thanks a lot

Michael Engstler.
