Chapter 10 - Statistics - 10.1 Circle Graphs - 10.1 Exercises: 36

Answer

5% of total, which is 18 degrees in a circle.

Work Step by Step

$percent=\frac{part}{whole}\times100$ $percent=\frac{273}{5460}\times100 = \frac{1}{20}\times5460 = 5$ We must then find 5% of 360 because a full circle is 360 degrees, so $\frac{5}{100}\times360 = 0.05\times360 = 18$
