MAPE = 2.33%

Step-by-step explanation:

The mean absolute percentage error (MAPE) can be determined by:

MAPE =  Given that:

periods are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10

forecast are 25, 32, 42, 53, 64, 70, 81, 88, 95, 102

actual are 26, 31, 45, 50, 70, 72, 78, 90, 100, 110

Thus, n = 10 and; = | + + + + + + + + + |

= |0.0385 + (-0.0323) + 0.0667 + (-0.06) + 0.0857 + 0.0278 + (-0.0385) + 0.0222 + 0.05 + 0.07273|

= 0.23283

Therefore;

MAPE = x 0.23283

= 10 x 0.23283

= 2.3283%

= 2.33%

The mean absolute percentage error = 2.33%
