## Percent error is 5.7%

Explanation:

What is percent error?

The percent error can be defined as the shift or diversion of the expected value from the actual value

let us use the following notations for our calculations

E=percent error

vA=actual value observed

vE=expected value

$$E= \frac{VA-VE}{VE}*100\\\\E= \frac{94.3-100}{100}*100\\\\E= \frac{5.7}{100}*100%\\\\E= 5.7%$$

Therefore the percent error is 5.7%
