1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data



2. Relevant equations



3. The attempt at a solution

Use the given graph of(x) =x^2 |x^2-1| < 1/2 whenever |x-1| <delta .The Given points on the graph are(0.8,0.5), (1.2,1.5). Please give your answer to the value of delta, where deltaor any smaller positive number will satisfy all conditions. correct to four decimals, round down if necessary.
