so we can say to find the percent uncertainty, it would simply be equal to the uncertainty divided by the original measurement. So 0.25 meters, divided by the original measurement of five point for eight meters and then we're going to multiply this by 100% and we're getting that. The percent uncertainty is approximately 4.6%. This is our final answer. That is the end of the solution. Thank you for watching.
