This is a question from Larson's calculus that I never was quite sure what exactly I'm supposed to do.

Do I graph -.001 < ((x^2 - 4)/ (x - 2) - 4) < .001

with something like when x <.001 ((x^2 - 4)/ (x - 2) - 4) and when x > .001 ((x^2 - 4)/ (x - 2) - 4) but I just get "undefined variable" errors (it does begin to graph it, though).

Do I solve abs(((x^2 - 4)/ (x - 2)) - 4) and then graph it?

Is this problem tyring to show that the delta values will be between the upper and lower bounds of | f(x) -L | < epsilon.

I'm not sure this a problem compatible with my calculator.
