i have a code where i have aa while loop and the condition is that the diffrence between two variables is bigger than the tolerence.
If the tolerane is 5E5 what does it actually means ? this has to do with correct digits. It is a numerical method question.

It depends...
Can you provide the code ?
And a little context so that we can help you ?

newton
a =19
k=3
s=1
tol = 5E-5
while ((d> tol)|
s = s + a;
a = a*6/(k+1);
d = abs(s-a)
k=k+1;
end;

You can try to type that in Command Window and you might have your answer right there :)

I see... but what is the purpose of the while loop and how do you decide the equations in that? For example, why a = a*6/(k+1); ?
