Ryan estimates the measurement of the volume of a popcorn container to be 282 cubic inches. The actual volume of the popcorn container is 289 cubic inches. What is the relative error of ryan's measurement to the nearest thousandth?

  • Math -

    (289-282)/289, expressed as a decimal to three places.

    That would be 0.024

    You could put a minus sign in front of it to show it was lower than the true value, but that usually is not done.
