Pie Graph

Pie Graph

Pie graphs represent data in a circle. Here, you can learn how to read or use pie graphs or circle charts.

Step by step guide to solve Pie Graph problems

  • A Pie Chart is a circle chart divided into sectors, each sector represents the relative size of each value.
  • To solve problems related to pie graphs, first, categorize your Data, find the Total, and find the value for each category or sector.

Example 1:

A library has \(670\) books that include Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, English, and History. Use the following graph to answer the question. What is the number of Mathematics books?

Solution:

Number of total books \(=670 \)
Percent of Mathematics books \(=30\%=0.30\)
Then: \(0.30×670=201\)

Example 2:

A library has \(840\) books that include Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, English, and History. Use following graph to answer question. What is the number of Mathematics books?

Solution:

Number of total books \(=840 \)
Percent of Mathematics books \(=30\%=0.30\)
Then: \(0.30×840=252\)

Exercises
