A student estimated the volume of liquid in a beaker as 200 mL. When she poured the liquid into a graduated cylinder, she measured the volume as 216 mL. What is the percent error of the estimated volume from the beaker, taking the measurement in the graduated cylinder as the accepted value?

would the answer be 1.85 or 1.81

(220-216)/(220) or (220-216)/(216)
