$\delta=0.0024$
Find a $\delta\gt0$ such that for all $x$ $$0\lt |x-\frac{1}{2}|\lt\delta\Rightarrow|f(x)-2|\lt0.01$$ Looking at the graphs, we can see that for values of $f(x)$ to be restricted between $1.99$ and $2.01$ (which means $|f(x)-2|\lt0.01$), $x$ must be placed between $\frac{1}{2.01}$ and $\frac{1}{1.99}$. We need to calculate the distance from $\frac{1}{2}$ to $\frac{1}{2.01}$ and $\frac{1}{1.99}$: $\frac{1}{2}-\frac{1}{2.01}\approx0.00249$ and $\frac{1}{1.99}-\frac{1}{2}\approx0.00251$ Since the distances are not exact, to make sure $x$ stay within the endpoints, we can choose $\delta=0.0024$ Therefore, $$0\lt |x-\frac{1}{2}|\lt0.0024\Rightarrow|f(x)-2|\lt0.01$$
