HOW TO DRAW A PIE CHART IN MS WORD PART 1

MICROSOFT WORD DRAWING PROJECT No. 18 PART 1


TITLE:   HOW TO DRAW A PIE CHART IN MS WORD

TYPE:   MATHEMATICS DIAGRAM



A pie chart is also known as a circular graph. The circle is divided from the centre  into several parts or sectors and each sector represents a proportion of the whole volume, amount or size of the data. The pie chart can be used in other subjects other than Mathematics. Drawing a pie chart which has no colours is not a difficult task. Actually, the real challenge is when you want to draw a coloured pie chart where each sector is filled with a different colour. Anyway, there is a way to do it in MS Word as you can see in the illustration above. Can anyone tell me how it is done? I believe that nothing beats the satisfaction of being able to create something on your own and knowing how to do it. Personally, I like to create my own clip art images with MS Word to be used in PowerPoint slides.

This can be easilly done by using arc (one of the basic shapes in auto shapes), am I right?

The Arc tool can be used to draw the pie chart but you will have problem adjusting the sectors to create a perfect circle. After all, it takes too much time. I didn't use the Arc tool to create this pie chart. Thanks for the comment.
