# How do you calculate percentage error?

It is your estimate minus the true value divided by the true value and multiplied by 100. So, % error = (estimate - actual) / actual * 100, in absolute value. For example, if you estimate that there are 90 jelly beans in a jar when there are actually 130 your percentage error is: (90-130)/13 (MORE)
