how to calculate percent error

Percent Error Formula = [ (Experimental Value  Theoretical Value) / Theoretical Value ] x 100%

is that an absolute value?
and can the experimental value & theo value be percents? 
also how do you find the mole ratio between anhydrous crystals and water
(hydrated crystal lab)
