Pie Chart Construction

INFORMATION GIVEN STEP 1: STEP 2: STEP 3:


Colours N° pupils like DECIMAL ANGLE IN 8°
this colour DEGREES
yellow 24 0.27 96°
72° 96°
blue 14 0.16 56°
red 32 0.36 128° `

green 18 0.20 72° 128°


56°
brown 2 0.02 8°
TOTAL 90 1.00 360°

STEP 1: WORK OUT FRACTION FOR EACH COLOUR GIVEN AS A DECIMAL N° = 24/90 = 0.27

STEP 2: WORK OUT THE ANGLE OF EACH PORTION FOR A PIE CHART = 0.27 X 360° = 96°

STEP 3: DRAW A CIRCLE AND USING A PROTRACTOR, MEASURE ANGLES

ET VOILA!
