Calculate the size of each slice of the

**pie chart**by multiplying the 'Frequency ÷ Total Frequency' by 360 (as there are 360**degrees**in one circle.) Note: To check that your calculations are correct make sure that the sum of the '**Degrees**of a circle' column equals 360.Similarly one may ask, what is the formula of pie chart?

Pie Chart Example

Football | Hockey | Cricket |
---|---|---|

(10/40) × 100 =25% | (5/ 40) × 100 =12.5% | (5/40) ×100 =12.5% |

Beside above, how do you find the sector angle of a pie chart? **Explanation:**

- In any sector, there are 3 parts to be considered:
- The arc length is a fraction of the circumference. The sector area is a fraction of the whole area. The sector angle is a fraction of 360°
- If the sector is 20% of the pie chart, then each of these parts is 20% of the whole.
- 20%×360°
- 20100×360=72°

Beside this, how do you find the percentage of a pie chart?

To **make** a **pie chart** displaying numbers that are **given** in decimal form, add all the numbers together, and then divide each individual number by that sum. That will give you more decimal numbers. Multiply each by 100 to arrive at **percentages** for each number.

Does pie chart have to equal 100?

All **pie charts** represent a whole amount that **equals 100**%. If you were to add up the percentages of each sector, it would **equal 100**%. For example, let's look at the pizza **pie chart**. The size of each sector is also proportional to its percentage.
