72 degress of a 360 degree circle are shaded. That equals 1/5. So 1/5 of the 50 students has yellow as their favorite color which makes 1/5*50= 10 students your answer.

Hope it helps!

We know that 360 degrees is a full circle

Since $$\frac{72}{360}$$ degrees of the circle's yellow

We can simplify that to $$\frac{1}{5}$$

One-fifth of the students favorite color is yellow

That means that $$10$$ students favorite color is yellow

Hope this helps!!!
