An approximation error can occur because the measurement of the data is not precise (due to the instruments), or approximations are used instead of the real data (p. ej.., 3.14 instead of π). One commonly distinguishes between the relative error and the absolute error. The numerical stability of an algorithm in numerical analysis indicates how the error is propagated by the algorithm.

Mathematically the absolute error is Relative error In psychometrics the relative error is the absolute error divided by the true value of the stimulus Percent error and the percent error is where the vertical bars denote the absolute value, a represents the true value, and b represents the approximation to a.
