Question 278 Data Handling - Exercise

A financial counselor gave a client this pie chart describing how to budget his income. If the client brings home Rs. 50,000 each month, how much should he spend in each category?

A circle graph, often known as a pie chart, is a visual representation of a particular set of data that is used in data processing to show numerical issues by cutting a circular statistical graphic into slices or sectors.

From the question it is given that,

Total money spent on 7 categories = Rs. 50,000

Then,

(1) Money spent on Housing = (30/100) × 50,000

= Rs. 15,000

(2) Money spent on Food (including eating out) = (20/100) × 50,000

= Rs. 10,000

(3) Money spent on Car Loan and Maintenance = (25/100) × 50,000

= Rs. 12,500

(4) Money spent on Utilities = (20/100) × 50,000

= Rs. 10,000

(5) Money spent on Phone = (5/100) × 50,000

= Rs. 2,500

(6) Money spent on Clothing = (5/100) × 50,000

= Rs. 2,500

(7) Money spent on Entertainment = (5/100) × 50,000

= Rs. 2,500
