imagine a dart board |dw:1346773851919:dw| When you throw multiple darts in the same spot or very close to the same spot every time anywhere on the board your shot is considered precise When you throw a dart and hit the middle of the board you are considered accurate. So accuracy is concerned with hitting the right value, whereas precision is concerned with hitting the same value over and over.
