    Answer:

    13.6%

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Step 1

    Find the actual volume of the box

    Volume = Length × Width × Height

    You measure the box and find that it has a length of 10 inches, a width of 9 inches, and a helght of 4.5 inches.

    Volume = 10 inches × 9 inches × 4.5 inches

    Volume of the box = 405 cubic inches

    Step 2

    Calculate the percent error

    |Estimated value – Actual value|/Actual value ×100

    Estimated value= 350 cubic inches

    Actual value = 405 cubic inches

    = |350 – 405|/405 × 100

    = |-55|/405 × 100

    = 55/405 × 100

    = 13.580246914%

    Approximately = 13.6%

    The Percent error is 13.6%
