I have to calculate the percent error for my experiment and I just wanted to make sure that I am doing it correctly.
My value was 1.376 and the accepted value was 1.371 so I did
[1.376  1.371] / 1.371 = 0.0036 X 100 = 0.36%
Did I do this correctly?

percent error formula= experimental value accepted value / accepted value * 100% % error = 0.846 g/mL  0.78948 g/mL / 0.78948 g/mL *100% = 7.31 % Is 7.31% correct or was there a calculation mistake?
