# Percent Error Versus Percent DIfference?

I am in a physics class and on our HW, we have to calculate percent difference and percent error. He gave us the equation for percent difference as |observed value - actual value|/ actual...but I thought that as the same as the equation for percent error. What am I missing?

thanks!
