500 people were asked to name their favorite color. The results of this survey are green 15%, blue 16%, purple 12%, pink 9%, black 9%, white 5%, grey 3%, yellow 5%, orange 4%, red 13%, and other 9%

Which sector makes an angle closest to 40 degrees? (Your answer should be a color word.)

By sector, they mean part of a circle. Like taking a slice of pizza out of an entire circle pizza

A circle is 360 degrees... and the sector is 40 degrees.

what is 40 out of 360?

1/9, is 0.1111111111111111111111111... repeating

So about 11 percent

So I would say PURPLE is the closest

I know there is already an answer-I'm just going to do it my way... You don't have to listen, skip if you wish, but I'm still going to post:

Using my way, let us find how many degrees one percent is.

100%:360degrees

1%:360/100

1%:3.6

purple: 12*3.6

43.2...

PURPLE WINS!
