**Math Proof**

You say that as epsilon ---> 0, |x-y|--->0
*September 1, 2014*

**Math Proof**

yes it has to be for any old epsilon, including one that is vanishingly small so that the difference between x and y is so tiny it does not exist.
*September 1, 2014*

**Math Proof**

well epsilon is anything you want it to be, but usually you make it a small number and let it approach zero. If x = 5 and y = 7 then |x-y| = epsilon now we would call epsilon = 2 BUT x is only equal to y if |x-y|< ANY epsilon bigger than zero, including e = .0000000001 so ...
*September 1, 2014*

**Math Proof**

on second thought draw x as a point on a number line, then y points epsilon to the right and to the left. Then let epsilon ---> 0

well, draw two points on a number line maybe a distance epsilon apart then let epsilon go to zero.
