14 Using a series of measurements rather than just one reading greatly reduces the probability of random and gross errors. Random effects tend to cancel over a large number of readings. Using a series of measurements will most likely not diminish the effects of systematic error since much systematic error is of the constant bias type. This means it is consistently high or low, so there is not an equal likelihood that it will be above or below the true reading. The systematic error will therefore skew a set of readings high or low.

Most shops and manufacturing facilities have such shop or working standards. They are not as accurate as secondary standards (but do not cost as much either) and must be periodically calibrated against a secondary standard. 0 volts. If this meter’s stated accuracy is ±2%, what range would contain the real value? 0, the meter reading multiplied by the stated accuracy will give the range. 2 volts. 0 volts. 2 volts. 0 volts as any other value in the range. 20 of a volt. However, precision should not be stated in these terms.
