The Approximate 1/4 mile trap speed recorded during a trial was 70.0 miles per hour. Later the speedo was calibrated, and it was found that the Actual speed reading should have been 69.5 miles per hour. The Percentage Error would therefore be 0.72%.

 Absolute Error = Apx Value - Actual Value

 Relative Error = [Apx Value - Actual Value]/Actual Value
