__Exercise 5.2__

- A survey was made to find the type of music that a certain group of young people liked in a city. Adjoining pie chart shows the finding of this survey.

- If 20 people liked classical music, how many young people were surveyed?
- Which type of music is liked by the maximum number of people?
- If a cassette company were to make 1000 CD’s, how many of each type would they make?

- Number of people who like classical music = 10 %

This 10% present 20 people.

So, 10% represent = = 200 people.

Therefore, 200 young people were surveyed.

- From the pie chart, it can be easily observed that the light music is represented by the maximum part of the pie chart 40%. Hence, most of the people like light music.
- Number of CD’s of classical music = 10% of 1000

= 100

So, the number of CD’s of semi classical music = 20% of 100

= = 200

So, the number of CD’s of folk music = 30%

= = 300

And the number of cassettes of light music = 40% of 1000

= = 400

**2. **A group of 360 people were asked to vote for their favorite’s season from the three seasons rainy, winter and summer.

(iii) Draw a pie chart to show this information.

Answer:

- Winter.
- Total number of votes = 90 + 120+ 150 = 360

Question 3:
