Homework Help: Calculus

Posted by Andrew on Monday, November 3, 2008 at 8:24pm.

If the tolerance on the volume of a cube is a 2% error then what should the tolerance be fore each side?

So what i did was
V=x^3

dV = 3x^2 dx

dV/V = 2%

What should I do next? the answer is 2/3% but I don't know how it works.

Thanks.
