# Epsilon Delta

## Main Question or Discussion Point

Recently in adv calc we have been dealing with the epsilon delta definition for continuity, and my professor said that it is ok to assume that delta<1. I actually used this to show that x^4 satisfies the epsilon delta condition but I'm not quite sure why we can take delta<1. Im sure you guys know the definition and it doesn't restrict delta at all.

I'm hoping someone can refer me to a resource or just give me some kind of insight.

Thanks
