when you make a circle graph how do you find the percent? like there are 33 people and only 4 likes cats 5 likes dogs 6 likes snakes 7 likes birds and 12 likes rats ... how would you find all the percents
next is how do you find the degrees to make the whole circle??
To find the percent you add up all the numbers 5+6+7+12+...then whatever number you get is the denominator. So if you want to find the percent of rats you take 12 divided by all the numbers added together. To determine the degrees of each part you can divide it into 4th which is 25% and then work up or down from there.
