Question

Determine the percentage.

A dad holds five coins in his hand. He tells his son that if he can guess the amount of money he is holding within
5% error, he can have the money. The son guesses that dad is holding 81 cents. The dad opens his hand and
displays 90 cents. Did the son guess close enough to get the money?
