Using R 2.0.1 on Mac g5 running Mac OS X 10.3.6.
I would expect that
abs(.7 - .5) >= abs(.3 - .5) should be returned TRUE.
> www <- abs(.7 - .5) >= abs(.3 - .5)
Is this a result of floating point or the implementation of abs or
In a function I need to compare two absolute values - each being of the
form |variable - constant|.
Any suggestions for implementing this correctly?
