1 Lesson 3.5.4 Circle Graphs and Percents Circle Graphs and Percents

2 Lesson 3.5.4 Circle Graphs and Percents California Standard: Number Sense 1.4 Calculate given percentages of quantities and solve problems involving discounts at sales, interest earned, and tips. What it means for you: You’ll use circle graphs to compare different percents Key words: percent circle graph 100% compare

3 Lesson 3.5.4 You’ll have seen circle graphs before in earlier grades. Circle Graphs and Percents Circle graphs are useful because they show clearly how the size of one group relates to another. They’re often used to compare different percents.

4 100% is Equal to the Whole Amount Lesson 3.5.4 100% of something is all of it. Circle Graphs and Percents It’s important to remember this when you’re looking at questions about percents.

5 Example 1 Solution follows… Lesson 3.5.4 Yesenia has a number of marbles. 65% of the marbles are red. The rest are all blue. What percent of Yesenia’s marbles are blue? Solution All the marbles are either red or blue. percent of red marbles + percent of blue marbles = all marbles Circle Graphs and Percents 65% + percent of blue marbles = 100% percent of blue marbles = 100% – 65% = 35% So 35% of Yesenia’s marbles are blue.

6 Guided Practice Solution follows… Lesson 3.5.4 1. 47% of students in a school are boys. What percent are girls? 100% – 47% = 53% 100% – 18% = 82% 100% – 29% = 71% 100% – (30 + 40)% = 30% Circle Graphs and Percents 2. A store took a survey of customers’ ages. 29% said they were under 15. What percent were aged 15 or over? 3. 18% of a class of 6th graders have a pet dog. What percent of the class don’t have a dog? 4. A bag contains a number of colored counters. All the counters are either blue, green, or yellow. 30% of the counters are blue, and 40% of the counters are green. What percent of the counters are yellow?

7 Guided Practice Solution follows… Lesson 3.5.4 5. Mrs. Goldman’s garden has only red, white, and blue flowers. 37% of the flowers are red, and 39% of the flowers are white. What percent of the flowers are blue? 100% – (37 + 39)% = 24% 100% – (27 + 41)% = 32% Circle Graphs and Percents 6. Visitors to a movie theater were asked which of 3 types of movie they liked best. This table shows the results. What is the missing percent? Action27% Comedy41% Romance?

8 Circle Graphs Are Often Divided into Percents Lesson 3.5.4 Circle graphs show how a total splits into different parts. Circle Graphs and Percents The girls section is larger. The two sections represent the boys and the girls. The whole circle represents the whole class. This means the class has more girls than boys. This graph represents a math class split into boys and girls.

9 Lesson 3.5.4 Circle Graphs and Percents When a circle graph shows percents, the whole circle represents 100%. A section that represents a certain percent fills that percent of the circle. 100%50% 25%

10 Example 2 Solution follows… Lesson 3.5.4 This circle graph shows the results of a survey to find which out of apples, bananas, and oranges students liked best. Solution The whole circle represents 100%, so the total value of all the sections must be 100%. Call the percent of students who like bananas best b %. Then 25 + 35 + b = 100 60 + b = 100 Circle Graphs and Percents What percent of the students like bananas best? b = 100 – 60 = 40 So 40% of the students like bananas best. The total of all sections is 100% 25 + 35 = 60 Subtract 60 from both sides

11 Guided Practice Solution follows… Lesson 3.5.4 In Exercises 7–10, find the missing value in each circle graph. 7.8. 9. 100% – 50% = 50%100% – (55 + 30)% = 15% 100% – (31 + 24)% = 45% Circle Graphs and Percents 10. 100% – (34 + 19 + 21)% = 26%

12 Guided Practice Solution follows… Lesson 3.5.4 A survey asked people which of three drinks they prefer. This graph shows the number of people who said they prefer each drink. 11. How many people answered the survey? 20 + 20 + 10 = 50 people 12. What fraction of these people preferred each drink? Circle Graphs and Percents 13. What percent of these people preferred each drink? Water: (1 ÷ 5) × 100 = 20%, Juice: (2 ÷ 5) × 100 = 40%, Milk: (2 ÷ 5) × 100 = 40% Water:, Juice:, Milk:= 10 50 1 5 = 20 50 2 5 = 20 50 2 5

13 Guided Practice Solution follows… Lesson 3.5.4 This graph shows the number of insects a scientist counted for a study. 14. How many insects were there in total? 125 + 75 + 125 + 175 = 500 insects Circle Graphs and Percents 15. What percent of each type of insect were there? Crickets: (125 ÷ 500) × 100 = 25%, Wasps: (75 ÷ 500) × 100 = 15%, Bees: (125 ÷ 500) × 100 = 25%, Butterflies: (175 ÷ 500) × 100 = 35%

14 You Can Turn Percents on Circle Graphs into Numbers Lesson 3.5.4 If you know how many units make up the full 100% of a circle graph, then you can work out how many each section represents. Circle Graphs and Percents 50% 25% If this graph represents 200 people… …so 25% = 50 people …then 100% = 200 people…

15 Example 3 Solution follows… Lesson 3.5.4 Chris, Martina, and D’Andre each ran for student body president. A total of 150 students voted in the election, and the outcome of the election is shown in the circle graph. How many students voted for Martina? Solution The circle graph tells you 40% of the students voted for Martina. You know that the whole circle graph represents 150 students. So the number of students who voted for Martina is Circle Graphs and Percents 40% of 150 = 0.4 × 150 = 60 A total of 60 students voted for Martina.

16 Guided Practice Solution follows… Lesson 3.5.4 16. This graph shows the results of a survey of students’ favorite school subjects. 80 students were surveyed. Find the number of students that liked each subject best. Math – 0.45 × 80 = 36, English – 0.30 × 80 = 24, Science – 0.25 × 80 = 20 Circle Graphs and Percents

17 Guided Practice Solution follows… Lesson 3.5.4 17. The percents of games won, lost, and tied by a soccer team out of their last 40 games are shown on this graph. How many of the games did they win, lose, and tie? Circle Graphs and Percents Won – 0.60 × 40 = 24, Tied – 0.15 × 40 = 6, Lost – 0.25 × 40 = 10

18 Guided Practice Solution follows… Lesson 3.5.4 18. This graph shows the percent of each color of balloon at a party. There were a total of 200 balloons at the party. Find how many of each color of balloon were at the party. Red – 0.48 × 200 = 96, White – 0.27 × 200 = 54, Blue – 0.25 × 200 = 50 Circle Graphs and Percents

19 Guided Practice Solution follows… Lesson 3.5.4 19. 300 people were surveyed as to which of 4 types of animals they liked the best. This graph shows the results.
