Among the 4 graphs (Line Graph, Bar Graphs, Pictograms, Pie Charts), identify ONE graph that is NOT an appropriate choice to represent the information? I think the pie chart is not an appropriate choice to represent the information.

Why do you think it's not appropriate?I think that it is not appropriate because the numbers are not accurate and it is in degrees.

What makes you think the 3 remaining graphs are appropriate? I think the remaining 3 graphs are appropriate because they show the exact number and can be read easily.

Your reasoning is based on accuracy in representating data (due to rounding off):

ReplyDeleteIf the figures given, after calculating result in exact figures (where no rounding off is necessary), would PIE graph still be appropriate then?

Points to ponder...

What kind of information does PIE chart usually provide?

Does each type of graph serve a different purpose or it doesn't matter?
