Percent error can be reduced by improving both your accuracy and precision.

Try your best to eliminate variables that may cause fluctuations in your experiment such as:
-Temperature differences
-Rate you add chemicals
-Time mixing
-Exposure to air if it affects concentration
-Inaccurate measurements

% error= #|Actual - Experimental|/|Experimental|*100#
