maths

if i have
k = 36.86 +/- 4.78
and
v = 113 +/- 9.92
both using 95% confidence limits and no true values of k or v given
am i right in saying that accuracy cannot be determined
and that v is a more precise measurement

my question was to comment on what can be said about
the precision
the accuracy
and which is measured more precisely

i know that the standard deviation and confidence limits are lower numerically for K
but proportionally as a percentage of the mean they are lower for V

i think this means that v is more accurate

i want to know if im correct in saying this

please can you just check this for me

  1. Yes, v is more accurate; it is the relative accuracy that is most important.

    Write a list of steps that are needed to find the measure of angle B. A measures 72 degrees and C measures 113. My answer: A + B + C = 180. 72 + B + (180-113) = 180, 72 + B + 67 = 180, B = 180 - 72 - 67 = 41 degrees Am I right?
