    This is how you calculate the percent error in a measurement: \(percent~error = \dfrac{|measured~size - actual~size|}{acutal~size} \times 100\)

    First, find the difference between the measurement and the actual size. Then take the absolute value of the difference. That means ignore the negative sign if there is one. Then divide by the actual size and multiply by 100.
