I've asked a question about error analysis and included a follow up question which is strongly related to the first one. I'm unsure whether it would be best to post them as separate questions.

I'm new to this stack, and I worry that if I post them both, I might seem like I'm spamming, but on the other hand, my initial question is already pretty long, and so it might seem like I'm asking too much for 1 question.

Last thing, I didn't include the actual real-world problem that inspired this question because I felt the the question was long enough as it is, and I figured the general case would make a better, more interesting question than my specific problem.

    $\begingroup$ Can you provide a link to your question? I certainly don't think asking 2 questions is too much / spamming in general. $\endgroup$ Sep 14, 2017 at 13:52

    $\begingroup$ @gung done, thought I had. I suppose I'm just not sure whether it's better to separate them out as there is some overlap $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ If the second one is a follow-up I would include in it a link to the first. If people who answer need more context first they will ask for it, or in the worst case vote to close as unclear. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @mdewey my issue is I don't know if the second part of that question warrants being split off into a separate question or not, or if it should be kept with the original question. $\endgroup$
