    b) 69%
    c) No as all are in the same timing and it is not possible to classify them together, probably it would be weird.

    b)69.2%
    c)No, as this information is only at the time of 7.25am and not over a long period of time.

    c) No. Again, Line Graphs are used to represent the information of an object or place for a duration of time, and since this information is about the number of vehicles at a certain time of day.

  14. a) The angle corrected to the nearest degree is 27º
    b) The percentage is about 69%
    c) No it is not possible as line graphs show changes in an amount of time but the information here shows a fixed amount of vehicles(numbers) at the same time, 7.25am

  15. 1)14%
    2)69%
    3)No.The number of cars are definitely not set over a period of time.

  18. a. 18º
    b. 69.2º
    c. Nope, as line graphs are used to represent changes over a period of time, which does not apply for this pie chart.

  19. a)30º
    b)69%
    c) no as it is not over a period if time

  20. a) 6.92( 3 SF ) ≈ 7º
    b) 69.23 ( 4 SF ) ≈ 69.2 ( 3 SF )
    c) It is not possible as this graph is just showing vehicles at 7.25 am while line graph does not as it records data over a long period of time.

    ReplyDelete
  21. a) 28º
    b)69.2
    c) No, lines graph only shows the no. of vehicles recorded at a specific time but it does not add the vehicle up like the pie chart.

  22. (a) 30º

    (b) 69.2%

    (c) ) No. It is only presenting the information at one point of time of and, not over a period of time.

    ReplyDelete
  23. a) 28º
    b)69.2%
    c) No it is not possible as line graph is to show a change in something over time. The information here is at a certain time and not over a while.

  24. a) motorcycle = 3
    total = 39
    angle = 3/39 x 360 = 28 degrees

    b) cars = 27
    total = 39
    percentage = 27/39 x 100% = 69.2% (3 s.f.)

    c) No as there may be different vehicles arriving at the same time so it is not possible to express that in a line graph unless each vehicle type has an individual line graph to show the amount of that particular vehicles during that particular time.

  25. a)28 degrees

    b)69.2%

    c)It is not possible to represent the information in a line graph. Line graphs can only be used in a period of time and the vehicles do not appear time after time.

  26. a)27º
    b)69º

    c)The information is not possible to be represented in a line graph as line graphs can only represent something in a period of a time and not over a period of time
