This explicit analysis by the Examiner provides “an apparent reason to combine the known elements in the fashion claimed by the patent at issue.” KSR, 550 U.S. at 418. This is also consistent with the recent non-precedential decision in In re Patel, 2014 WL 3454231 *4 (Fed. Cir. 2014) (“a rejection based on ranges approaching each other might well be appropriate where there is a teaching in the prior art that the end points of the prior art range are approximate, or can be flexibly applied”).
