Question 1:Â The pie chart given below shows the imports of 7 different items P1, P2, P3, P4, P5, P6 and P7 as a percentage of total imports of a country.

Imports of item P6 is how much percent more than the imports of item P5?

a)Â 75%

b)Â 33%

c)Â 80%

d)Â 9%

Solution:

Let total imports be x units
Then, Imports of P5 = 12% of x = 0.12x
Imports of P6 = 21% of x = 0.21x
Then, Required percentage = $\dfrac{0.21x-0.12x}{0.12x}\times100 = \dfrac{0.9x}{0.12x}\times100 = \dfrac{3}{4}\times100 = 75$%

Question 2:Â The pie chart given below shows sale of different types of cars in a city for a given year. The total sale of cars in the city is 600000.

What is the sum of total number of cars sold of type T5, T6 and T3?

a)Â 232000

b)Â 228000

c)Â 245000

d)Â 252000

Solution:

Cars sold of type T3 = 13% of 6 lakhs
Cars sold of type T5 = 17% of 6 lakhs
Cars sold of type T6 = 8% of 6 lakhs
Therefore, Total cars sold of type T3, T5 and T6 = 13% of 6 lakhs + 17% of 6 lakhs + 8% of 6 lakhs = 38% of 6 lakhs = 228000

Question 3:Â The pie chart given below shows sale of different types of cars in a city for a given year. The total sale of cars in the city is 600000.

What is the difference in the number of cars sold of type T5 and T1?

a)Â 21000

b)Â 24000

c)Â 18000

d)Â 27000

Solution:

Number of cars sold of T1 = 20% of 6 lakhs
Number of cars sold of T5= 17% of 6 lakhs
Required difference = 20% of 6 lakhs – 17% of 6 lakhs = 3% of 6 lakhs = 18000

Question 4:Â The following pie-chart shows the percentage distribution of the expenditure incurred in publishing a book. Study the pie-chart and answer the questions based on it.

Royalty on the book is less than the paper cost by:

a)Â 25%

b)Â 30%

c)Â 50%

d)Â 40%

Solution:

Given expenditure on royalty=15%
Expenditure on paper cost=25%
Required percentage=((25-15)/25)*100
=10*100/25
=40%

Question 5:Â The following pie-chart shows the percentage distribution of the expenditure incurred in publishing a book. Study the pie-chart and answer the questions based on it.

b)Â â‚¹38,250

c)Â â‚¹38,000

d)Â â‚¹30,2503

Solution:

Given in the pie diagram printing cost=20% of total expenses

d)Â $13\frac{1}{3}$%

Solution:

Sales of Company F in 2017 = 10% of Rs.300 crore = Rs.30 crore
Sales of Company F in 2018 = 13% of Rs.200 crore = Rs.26 crore
Decrease in sales = $\dfrac{30-26}{30}\times100 = \dfrac{40}{3}$% $= 13\dfrac{1}{3}$%

Question 14:Â The pie charts show the market share of companies in the rice market in 2017 and 2018. The value of sales of Company A in 2017 was â‚¹40 lakhs. If its sales grew by 25% in 2018, what was approximate value of sales of company B in 2018?

b)Â â‚¹13.96 lakhs

c)Â â‚¹12.96 lakhs

d)Â â‚¹13.56 lakhs

Solution:

Value of sales of Company A in 2017 = Rs.40 lakhs
Value of sales of Company A in 2018 = 125% of Rs.40 lakhs = Rs.50 lakhs which is 27% of sales of all companies
27% –> Rs.50 lakhs
7% –> $\dfrac{7 \times 50}{27} = 12.96$ lakhs

Question 15:Â The pie chart given below shows the time taken in 7 different procedures J1, J2, J3, J4, J5, J6 and J7 in making a car as a percentage of total time taken. The total time taken in making one car is 1200 hours.

Percentage of time taken in J2 = 18%
Percentage of time taken in J5 = 12%
Total time taken = 12+18 = 30% of 1200 = 360 hours

Instructions

The following table indicates the number of students studying in three disciplines in five colleges:

Question 17:Â If a pie-chart is drawn representing the number of students in all five colleges, what is the central angle (correct to the nearest whole number) of the sector representing the students of college B?

a)Â $86^\circ$

b)Â $82^\circ$

c)Â $80^\circ$

d)Â $84^\circ$

Solution:

From the above table,
The number of students are available in college A$= 950$
The number of students are available in college B $= 1200$
The number of students are available in college C $= 850$

The number of students are available in college D $= 975$
The number of students are available in college E $= 1025$

Hence, total number of students are available in the class $= 5000$

so percentage of area occupy by college B $\dfrac{1200\times 100}{5000}=24\%$

which occupy 24% of the area in the pie graph.

Question 18:Â The Pie chart given below presents the percentages of the number of motor cycles of different colours out of the total number of motor cycles, parked in an area. The central angles shown in the Pie chart are not as per any chosen scale.

What is the central angle (nearest to one degree) corresponding to the motorcycle of black colour?

a)Â 44

b)Â 45

c)Â 46

d)Â 47

Solution:

As we know that the entire circle has 360$\ ^{\circ\ }$.

So 100% =Â 360$\ ^{\circ\ }$

1% = 3.6$\ ^{\circ\ }$

In chart,Â motor cycle of black colour has 13%.

So 13% =Â $\left(3.6\ \times\ 13\right)^{\circ\ }$

=Â 46.8$\ ^{\circ\ }$

= 47$\ ^{\circ\ }$ (approx.)

So option (d) will be the correct answer as per the approx. value.

Question 19:Â The Pie chart given below presents the percentages of the number of motor cycles of different colours out of the total number of motor cycles, parked in an area. The central angles shown in the Pie chart are not as per any chosen scale.

If the total number of motorcycles parked is 2300, then what is the number of red colour motor cycles out of them?

a)Â 284

b)Â 288

c)Â 280

d)Â 276

Solution:

If the total number of motorcycles parked is 2300.

100% = 2300

1% = 23

number of red colour motor cycles out of them = 12% =Â $12\times\ 23$

=Â 276

Question 20:Â The Pie chart given below presents the percentages of the number of motor cycles of different colours out of the total number of motor cycles, parked in an area. The central angles shown in the Pie chart are not as per any chosen scale.

If the total number of motor cycles parked is 2300, the number having white colour is how much less than those having the blue colour?

a)Â 66

b)Â 72

c)Â 63

d)Â 69

Solution:

If the total number of motorcycles parked is 2300.

100% = 2300

1% = 23

white colourÂ motorcycles parked = 18%Â = $18\times\ 23$ =Â 414

blueÂ colour motorcycles parked = 21% =Â $21\times\ 23$ =Â 483

Difference =Â 483-414 =Â 69

the number having white colour is 69 less than those having the blue colour.
