  1. Sample 2 has least percent error.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The formula for percent error is

    [tex]E=\frac{\text{Stated amount-Actual amount}}{\text{Actual amount}}\times 100[/tex]

    Percent error in sample 1:

    [tex]E_1=\frac{14-13.7}{13.7}\times 100\approx 2.19[/tex]

    The percent error in sample 1 is 2.19.

    Percent error in sample 2:

    [tex]E_2=\frac{24-24.4}{24.4}\times 100\approx -1.64[/tex]

    The percent error in sample 2 is 1.64.

    Percent error in sample 3:

    [tex]E_3=\frac{25-25.8}{25.8}\times 100\approx -3.1[/tex]

    The percent error in sample 3 is 3.1.

    Percent error in sample 4:

    [tex]E_4=\frac{39-40.2}{40.2}\times 100\approx -2.99[/tex]

    The percent error in sample 4 is 2.99.

    Therefore sample 2 has least percent error.
