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.
