# Question 5836b

May 3, 2017

26%

#### Explanation:

To find the percent error, first, find the amount of the error by subtracting the accepted value from the experimental value.

$\text{error} = 315 - 250 = 65$

Second, take the amount of error and divide it by the accepted value and multiply by 100% to turn it into a percent

( 65 xx 100%)/ 250 = 26%#

Note

The value cannot be rounded to the nearest hundredth percent because whole numbers cannot be rounded by adding decimals.
