# Some facts

**Absolute error**is the absolute value of the difference between**measured value**(calculated, approximate etc.) and**reference value**(ideal, theoretical etc.):

$\Delta x = |x-x_0|$where:

**$\Delta x$**- absolute error,

**$x$**- measured, calculated or approximate value of variable $x$,

**$x_0$**- the reference value against which we calculate the error.

**Relative error**determines the size of the error made presented as**part of the reference value**:

$\delta x_{wzgl.} = \left|\frac{x-x_0}{x_0}\right|$where:

**$\delta x_{rel.}$**- error expressed as a part of the reference value,

**$x$**- measured, calculated or approximate value of variable $x$,

**$x_0$**- the reference value against which we calculate the error.

- When we determine the error, we are generally not trying to find out whether the value obtained is
**too large**or**too small**, but only how big the error is. This is the reason why error formula has the**absolute value**form. - In the case of values with units (e.g. length measured in meters), the absolute error has
**the same units**as the measured one. For example, an absolute error of length value is also the length. **Relative error**has**no units**, no metter what do we measure. Relative error is often presented as percent.
