500 people are asked to name their favorite color. The results of this survey are shown in the pie chart below: Each sector of the pie chart makes an angle at the center. For example, the yellow sector makes an 18 degrees angle, since 18 degrees is 5 percent of 360 degrees.

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

Considering the "rainbow" colors, the  percent who preferred red  can be found thusly :

Red  = .13 * 500  =  65

Orange  = .04 * 500  = 20

Yellow = .05 * 500  =  25

Green   =  .15 * 500  = 75

Blue  =  .16 * 500  =  80

Purple  = .12 * 500  =  60

So..... the %  that preferred red is

65  /  [  65 + 20 + 25 + 75 + 80 + 60 ]  =

65  /  325    =

1 / 5   =

20%   Dec 20, 2017
