Percent notation is often represented in pie charts to show how the parts of a quantity are related. To draw the pie chart think of a pie cut into 100 equally sized pieces. Then shade a wedge equal in size to 56 of the pieces to represent 56%. Shade in a wedge equal to 14 of the pieces to represent 14%, and so on. Section 7.12
