Answer:

Percentage error in volume is #6.11%#

Explanation:

We have #"Volume"="Length"xx"Breadth"xx"Thickness"#

As error in measurement using vernier calipers is #2%# in length, #1%# in breadth and #3%# in thickness,

percentage error in volume would be given by

#1.02xx1.01xx1.03=1.061106#

i.e. #6.1106~=6.11%#
