"The graph shows types of trash in a typical American city. Find the measure of each central angle to the nearest whole number." (I do not want all the answers, I just want to know HOW to get them so I will only post the first three problems that corresponds with the graph)

1.Glass (On the graph glass is at 6%)

2.Metals (On the graph metals is at 8%)

3.Plastics (On the graph plastics is at 10%)

Please help because I am SO STUCK!!!

There are 360 degrees in a full circle.

6% of 360 degrees = .06 * 360 = 21.6 degrees = 22 degrees to nearest degree

.08 * 360 = 29 degrees etc.

Yes! The answer you provided on this website is true! I confirmed with my Geometry teacher that the answer in the book for #1 is in fact wrong... it is a typo.
