Show that, for any object moving

Show that, for any object moving at less than one-tenth the speed of light, the relativistic kinetic energy agrees with the result of the classical equation K = ½ mu2 to within less than 1%. Thus for most purposes, the classical equation is good enough to describe these objects, whose motion we call non-relativistic.
