The amount of money spent by a family on various expenses is given in a table. If the family constructs a pie chart using these figures, what is the approximate measure of the central angel of the sector used to represent the percentage of total expenses spent on food? (chart: rent=\$750, food=\$575, utilities=\$120, car loan=\$450, medical=\$65, entertainment=\$120, credit card=\$350, misc=\$95...gives a total expenses as \$2525).

• math -

Total number of degrees in the center = 360.

To get you started:

Rent: 750 / 2525 = 0.297 = 29.7%
360 * 0.297 = 106.9 = 107 degrees

Food: 575 / 2525 = 0.228 = 22.8%
360 * 0.228 = 82.08 = 82 degrees

I'm sure you can complete this pie chart. We'll be glad to check your work.
