Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I like your logic when you got the wrong answer, you knew the answer had to be less than 5100. good thinking

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, that is right we calculated the number of the members 33 which is 22% of 150. Sorry I didn't see that sooner.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0As part of a survey, 1500 people were asked to name their favorite sport to watch. The table below summarizes their answers. This information is also presented as a circle graph. Find the central angle measure, x degrees , for the Basketball slice in the circle graph. Do not round. i will put the circle graph up now.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes. it looks like basket ball is 13%, I want to add them all up to see if I am missing something, they should add up to 100.......they do.

radar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Since the central angle is 360 degrees, then 13% would be represented by 13% of 360 degrees. Does that sound logical?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so to find x i would 13/360??

radar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If that is the case, then 360 * .13 = 46.8 degrees

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No you would look at it like if it was like 50% then it would be 1/2 or 180 degrees. It is a fractional multiplying thing. you are multiplying 13% which is 13/100 or .13 get it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That ratio will be equal to the x angle/360 degrees
