Ok. In general is the absolute error either +ve or -ve? Is an error bound always positive? Wikipedia seems to muddle these things up.

To calculate the absolute error you've taken the minimum value of r so you must also take the minimum value of pi which is 3.1415. This will get the answer in the book. Part b is done similarly for pi=3.14159.

There is much more work than this. I know how to do it though.
