## What is the machine epsilon?

What is the machine epsilon? Computer systems are the digital systems. Every information that is represented in computer is always limited in its representation in terms of the number of bits available. Every machine (calculator, computer) has specific number of bits reserved for representing a number. Real numbers are represented as floats in computers. There are two ways for representing real numbers in computers:
