Oh dear! A round-off error gives a slightly incorrect answer. Moral: Unless you are working with integers, never test to see if one number is exactly equal to some other value. Never use ¼A20¼B20 to see if the values computed by two methods give the same result. We can allow for round-off error by using formulas such as ¼ROUND(ABS(A20-B20), 10)¼0 or ¼ABS(A20-B20)<1E-10 to see if the absolute difference in the two results expressed to 10 digits is 0 or not. The ROUND and ABS functions are explored in Chapter 4.
