2. The distance between x and 1 exceeds 1/2.

3. The distance between x^3 and 1 is at most 0.001.

4. The number y is less than one unit from the number t.

1. You told me that this forum is not for math help.

2. You said I can post problems here for members to practice with.

3. Problems that I post here are not those for which I seek help with.
