Hi ElMaestro,

❝ ❝ For observation 8 we have -3.608225e-16, I think,

❝ I think, is around the "effective zero" for fits in R at default settings on 64- and 32-bit systems.


Yes, it is. ;-)

x    <- -3.608225e-16
zero <- .Machine$double.eps
all.equal(x, zero)
[1] TRUE
zero
[1] 2.220446e-16

Whenever a theory appears to you as the only possible one,
take this as a sign that you have neither understood the theory
nor the problem which it was intended to solve.    Karl R. Popper
