## Percent Deviation Formula

The following formula is used to calculate a percent deviation.

D =( X_{m} – X_{t} ) / X_{t} * 100

- Where D is the percent deviation (%)
- X
_{m}is the measured value - X
_{t}is the true value

## Percent Deviation Definition

A percent deviation is defined as the percentage difference between a measured value and a true value.

## Percent Deviation Example
