MYP Maths, Errors

The Error is defined as the difference between the estimated value and true value.

The percentage error is found by comparing the error with the true value and expressing this as a percentage.

Therefore for your question are

Error=estimated value-true value=7400-7412=-12

and Absolute percentage error
