## Answers ( )

The relative error is: 0.0625 or 0.0625 * 100 = 6.25%Step-by-step explanation:Relative error is given by the formula:

[tex]Relative\ error = \frac{absolute\ error}{Actual\ Value}[/tex]

While the absolute error is given by:

[tex]Absolute\ Error = |Measured – Actual|[/tex]

Given

Required Sauce = Actual = 4 ounces

Added Sauce = Measured = 3 3/4 = 15/4 ounces

So,

[tex]absolute\ error = |\frac{15}{4} – 4|\\= |\frac{15-16}{4}|\\=|\frac{-1}{4}|\\= \frac{1}{4} => 0.25[/tex]

Putting the values in the formula

[tex]Relative\ error = \frac{0.25}{4} = 0.0625[/tex]

Hence,

The relative error is: 0.0625 or 0.0625 * 100 = 6.25%Keywords:Relative error, errorLearn more about relative error at:#LearnwithBrainly
