Pie Charts: Practice Problems Grade 7
(also called a Pie Graph or Circle Graph) makes use of sectors in a
circle. The angle of a sector is proportional to the frequency of the data.
The formula to determine the angle of a sector is:
Study the following steps of constructing a circle graph:
Step 1 :
Calculate the angle of each sector, using the formula
: Draw a circle using a pair of compasses
: Use a protractor to draw the angle for each sector.
Step 4 :
Label the circle graph and all its sectors.
