# Thread: how to show show this proof using MAX

1. ## how to show show this proof using MAX

i know that the fundamental law is using maximum in the red marked areas

but here

they use MIN because its 1/expression

??

In the proof, by letting $\delta = \min \left\{ {1,\frac{\varepsilon }
{{11}}} \right\}$
the author insures both the previous conditions will remain true.

3. i saw a similar proof that i published before which is very similar to this one but uses MAX
and i am puzzled
why?
