# If a train travels 899 km from Berlin to Paris and then overshoots the end of the track by 14 m what is the percentage error in the total distance covered?

899km x 1000 (to get KM into Meters) = 899,000m The first step is to write 14 as a fraction of 899000, which is simply 14/899000 Now we just need to convert this fraction to a… percentage : 14/899000 = 0.00001557286% So we have the final answer : 14 is 0.00001557286% of 899000 The percentage error is therefore 0.00001557286% (MORE)
