Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1LOL... um. I think what you need to do is first find the difference (error) between your estimated weight and the actual weight. So 60  68 = 8 Ignore the negative... so our error is 8. Then to find the percentage error we do : error/ actual value = 8 / 68 = 2/17 Then change it into a percentage by multiplying by 100. 2/17 * 100 = 11.76 Then round it to the nearest tenth ( 1 decimal point) 11.76 = 11. 8 (1dp)
