Total money: Rs 10800
To work out the angle of each segment, work out the fraction of the total that each item got.
Start with food:
There are 360° in a full turn, so to work out the angle, multiply the fraction by 360:
The food sector has an angle of 105°
Repeat this process to find the angle of the segments for the other items.
Once you have calculated the angles of the segments, construct the pie chart
