Formula given on the Regents:

Formula not given on the Regents

Area of a circle = πr2 Circumference of a circle = 2πr

Relative Error

Any measurement made with a measuring device is approximate.

If you measure the same object two different times, the two measurements may not be exactly the same. The difference between two measurements is called a variation in the measurements.

Another word for this variation - or uncertainty in measurement - is "error." This "error" is not the same as a "mistake." It does not mean that you got the wrong answer. The error in measurement is a mathematical way to show the uncertainty in the measurement. It is the difference between the result of the measurement and the true value of what you were measuring.

When the accepted or true measurement is known, the relative error is found using:

Note that the relative error is always a positive answer – that is why the formula uses the absolute value on the top line. If your calculation gives you a negative answer, just write it as a positive value in the final step.

Wendy measures the floor in her rectangular bedroom for new carpeting. Her measurements are 24 feet by 14 feet. The actual measurements are 24.2 feet by 14.1 feet. Determine the relative error in calculating the area of her bedroom. Express your answer as a decimal to the nearest thousandth

Solution:

Measured value = 24 x 14 = 336 ft2

Actual value = 24.2 x 14.1 = 341.22 ft2

= 336 – 341.22 = -0.015298

341.22

Finally change the negative to a positive value and round to the ‘nearest thousandth ‘

The answer is 0.015. (Note there are no units)
