Accuracy is the agreement of a particular value to the true value of the result. For example, if the true value for a result is 4.00 g and a student takes two measurements and reports the results as 3.95 g and 3.93 g. These values are precise as they are close to each other but are not accurate.

The method used to convert units from one system to other is called factor label method or unit factor method.
