Percent error is the percentage difference between a known value and a measured or calculated value. The formula for percent error is

$%_{error} = \frac{ | \mathrm{value}_{approximate} - \mathrm{value}_{exact}| }{ | \mathrm{value}_{exact}| } \times 100%$

The smaller the percent error, the more accurate the results.
