# Class 8 RD Sharma Solutions – Chapter 25 Data Handling III (Pictorial Representation Of Data As Pie Charts Or Circle Graphs) – Exercise 25.1 | Set 2

**Question 11. The following table shows how a student spends his pocket money during the course of a month. Represent it by a pie diagram.**

Items | Food | Entertainment | Other Expenditure | Saving |

Expenditure (in %) | 40 | 25 | 20 | 15 |

**Solution:**

Given that, total Expenditure = 100%

Therefore,

Central angle = (component value/100) × 360°

Now the central angle for each activity will be calculated as follows:

ItemsExpenditure (in %)Central AngleFood 40 40/100 * 360 = 144 Entertainments 25 25/100 * 360 = 90 Other Expenditure 20 20/100 * 360 = 72 Saving 15 15/100 * 360 = 54 Steps to construct pie chart using above data :

Step 1.First draw the circle of an appropriate radius.

Step 2.Now draw a vertical radius anywhere inside the circle.

Step 3.Now choose the largest central angle. Construct a sector of central angle, whose one radius coincides with the radius drawn in step 2 and the other radius is in clockwise direction to the vertical radius.

Step 4.Construct other sectors representing other values in clockwise direction in descending order of values of their central angles.

Step 5.Shade the sectors so obtained by different colors and label them.
