Please help me
How can I create a pie chart for the following information
Branch Count
Army 17
Navy 10
Air Force 4
Marines 6
Coast Guard 1
National Guard 2

    Since a pie chart represents 100%, I'd find the percentage for each and divide them up in your chart as close a possible. There are 40 total in your count, so 17 Army represents 42-43%, 10 Navy for 25%, and so on.
    I hope this helps:)

    Thank you

    You have a total of 40 items (people). Therefore each item corresponds to 360/40 degrees or 9 degrees. Therefore the Coast Guard is 9 degress of the circle, National Guard is 18 degrees etc.
