    Find the percent error in each estimation. Round to the nearest percent. You estimate that a tree is 45 ft tall. It is actually 58 ft tall.

    ok this is what I did x = 45ft - 58ft ----------(100) 45ft 45 - 58 = -13 --- = .28 (100) = 28% 45

    a carpenter estimates the wall is 20ft tall The wall is actually 18ft tall. x = 18ft - 20ft ----------(100) 18ft 18 - 20 = -2 --- = .11(100) = 11% 18
