    Answer: approximately 5.1724%

    Work Shown:

    2 hrs, 45 min = 120 min + 45 min = 165 min

    2 hrs, 54 min = 120 min + 54 min = 174 min

    A = estimated value = 165

    B = true value = 174

    C = percent error

    C = 100 * (|A - B|) / B

    C = 100 * (|165-174|) / 174

    C = 100 * (| - 9 |) / 174

    C = 100*9/174

    C = 900/174

    C = 5.1724% which is approximate
