Kayla's class went on a filed trip to an aquarium. One Tank had 30 clown fish. She miscounted the total number of clown fish and recorded it as 24 fish. What is the percent error?

percent error = l measured value - true value l  / true value x 100%  =

 

l 24  - 30 l  /  30  x 100%  =

 

l 6  l  / 30  x 100%  =

 

(6/30) x 100%  =

 

(1/5) x 100%  =

 

100% / 5  =

 

20%
