(1.00001*0.99999)-(1.00002*0.99998)

= (1+0.00001)(1-0.00001) - (1+0.00002)(1-0.00002)

= 1 - (0.00001)^2 - 1 + (0.00002)^2

= -(0.0000000001) + (0.0000000004)

= 0.0000000003

(1.00001*0.99999)-(1.00002*0.99998)

= (1 + 0.00001)*(1-0.00001)-(1+ 0.00002) * (1-0.00002)
= (x^2 - y^2) - (x^2 - z^2) = z^2 - y^2
where
x = 1, y = 10^(-5), z = 2* 10^(-5)

= 4*10^(-10) - 10^(-10) = 3 * 10^(-10)

(1.00001)(0.99999) - (1.00002)(0.99998) =

A. 0
B. 10^-10
C. 3(10^-10)
D. 10^-5
E. 3(10^-5)

Apply a^2-b^2=(a+b)(a-b).

1.00001*0.99999-1.00002*0.99998=(1+0.00001)(1-0.00001)-(1+0.00002)(1-0.00002)=
=1^2-0.00001^2-1^2+0.00002^2=0.00002^2-0.00001^2.

Next, 0.00002^2-0.00001^2=(0.00002+0.00001)(0.00002-0.00001)=0.00003*0.00001=3*10^{-5}*10^{-5}=3*10^{-10}.

Answer: C.
