Elearning Lesson 1 Task 1 By Amelia

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

Why do you think it's not appropriate?
If the numbers used in the Pie Chart are not perfect, the numbers would be rounded off, causing the degree to be not perfect, producing an inaccurate diagram, hence I think it is not appropriate.
What makes you think the 3 remaining graphs are appropriate?
The numbers are not rounded off as one whole is not a weird number like 360, which makes it hard to represent.

  1. According to your reason, it's on inaccuracy in data due to rounding off:

    If 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?
