Pie Charts

CHAPTER 4

Pie Charts

Circle graphs are used to show how various sectors share in the whole. Circle graphs are sometimes called pie charts. Circle graphs usually give the percentage that each sector receives.
Expenditure of Major Industries 2000 (\$3,087 million)
Legal affairs, 12%

Construction, 2%

## 2010 (\$4,851 million)

Research, 14%

Compensation, 38%

Materials, 22%

## Taxes, 2% Legal affairs, 4%

Construction, 5%

Q. The amount spent on materials in 2000 was 120% of the amount spent on (a) research in 2000 (b) compensation in 2000 (c) advertising in 2010 (d) materials in 2010

In 2000, 18% of the expenditures were for materials. We want x where 120% of x = 18%; so x = 15%. Any category that received 15% of 2000 expenditures gives the correct answer, but only one of the five choices is correct. Here, the answer is (a) since research received 15% of the expenditure in 2000.
