    that actually means between 0 and 426. to be clever, instead you should've said 213 with no significant figures.

    actually, i think i'm gonna have to review the definitions of error, relative error, tolerance, margin of error, confidence interval, because what i said might be completely wrong.

    Not exactly what your looking but may help put it into perspective. It really would depend on the size of the pig and skill of the butcher I would have thought.
