Bethany Burgess Obesity In America Pie graphs should be diagrammed using percentage form so that the represented information adds up to 100% (or the completed circle). This doesn’t account for the entire world population. Therefore a pie graph is inappropriate for the data it’s being used to convey. It is misleading upon first glance because the “pie pieces” in the graph are not proportional to the data as well. The 200 appears to be about 1/3 of the pie should really be closer to 40% (200/516= 39%) 1. The graph includes a title that tells readers what information is being conveyed. 2. The graph also contains a key that indicates what the different segments represent. 3. The information represented is quantitative (discrete) because it is people.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
