    Answer:

    The percent error in his calculation is 5.26%.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Percent error:

    Number of misses multiplied by 100 and divided by the correct value.

    In this question:

    Total of 72 + 4 = 76 people. 4 were missed, so:

    E = \frac{4(100)}{76} = \frac{400}{76} = 5.26

    The percent error in his calculation is 5.26%.
