This will really sound like an elementary question but here it is anyway... I'm trying to "prove" that a position using only 1 basic dimension is simply 2X the deviation in that given axis. They don't believe me. The engineers can't find a formula for that particular equation (because it would be stupid to even go through the exercise...) 2x sqrt of X^2 will always = the deviation X2 so they're freaking out. They've got to have "proof"

Anyway, can you guys (and gals) point me in the direction where I might be able to find an explanation for this type of position? The guys upstairs thing that the total deviation is the position when in fact it is not. That is just a stupid linear distance and nothing more. I need something to "prove" this to them since evidently I'm to stupid for them to believe what I tell them... I'd really appreciate it any help. Thanks in advance.
