### Indeterminacy Question

If I have an indeterminacy of delta x, does that mean that any x that I get will be in the range +- delta x or +- delta x/2?

it will be in the range of +- delta x/2 because the uncertainty in x is the range of possible answers (if delta x is four then the range of answers is +-2)

Yes. Delta x is the span of possible answers for the position of an object. So for example, if your delta x is 10 then your range is +/- 5.
