Topic Notes
Circle graphs are also known as pie charts. In this section, we are asked to interpret and create circle graphs. When interpreting the graphs, we are asked to determine the number of people represented by given percentages in our graphs. Also, we are asked to interpret tables of data and fill in these tables by converting between fractions, percentages and decimal numbers. Finally, we are asked to draw circle graphs to display data given in these tables.
