    Precision is a measure of how precise or close a value is to the actual. To obtain more precise measurements, you must use smaller units. When you use smaller units, the increment becomes smaller, making it easier to measure to higher precision.

    The higher precision you have, the more accurate your measurement is. To obtain more accuracy, you must use smaller and smaller units. Hope that helped! :)
