The word “accuracy” has a wide spectrum of everyday applications. “Merriam-Webster’s Online” dictionary defines the accuracy as:

  • (1)

    freedom from mistake or error, i.e., correctness;

  • (2a)

    conformity to truth or to a standard or model, i.e., exactness;

  • (2b)

    degree of conformity of a measure to a standard or a true value; this meaning is close to precision.
