In my lab class, I needed to find k for a spring in two ways (hanging a mass from a spring & through simple harmonic motion). I've done this and now need to compare the two values - the question asks me to determine "the precision, expressed as a percent" of my measurements for k - I don't understand what this means.

Can someone advise me as to how I can go about determining the precision of a given value & expressing it as a %? Thank you.
