Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will be looking at a pie chart.

No, not that sort of pie, but maybe you can see why the pie chart below is given that name?

This pie chart shows the holiday destinations of a class of children.

When we add up all of the percentages, the entire pie is equal to 100%.

Example
What fraction of the class stayed in the UK?

We look at the blue piece of pie that says the UK and we can see that we have 25% of the class in this segment.

25/100 children stayed in the UK which we can simplify by dividing both the top and bottom by 25 to get  1/4 of the class stayed in the UK.

Does that make sense?

Right, let's try some questions now!
