EXAMPLE 1. Show graphically by the sector method the relative amounts of the various constituents of black gunpowder if it is made up of Sulphur.
10 per cent Charcoal .
15 per cent Saltpeter.
75 per cent
The circumference of a circle contains 360 degrees.
The parts into which it is to be divided in this case are 10 hundredths of it for sulphur, 15 hundredths of it for charcoal, and 75 hundredths of it for saltpeter. That is, Sulphur
.10 x 360°, or 36° Charcoal
.15 X 360°, or 54° Saltpeter
.75 X 360°, or 270°
If a circle is drawn and these angles laid off, the accompanying figure will result.

EXAMPLE 2. Show in similar manner the relative numbers of students in the four classes of the Los Angeles Polytechnic High School if the numbers are as follows:
It is frequently an aid in making the drawing if the figures to be used are tabulated in some such way as the following:
If the angles in the fourth column are laid off on a circumference of convenient size, the figure will have the following appearance.
In the construction of a graphic chart, care should be exercised in the selection of the lengths of the units to be used so that the figure or diagram may not be of inconvenient size or shape.
1. Observing the precaution just given, prepare a diagram showing the temperatures at which various substances melt.
TEMPERATURES AT which VARIOUS SUBSTANCES MELT
MELTING POINT DEGREES CENTIGRADE
1063 1100 1200 1775 1950
2. Prepare a graph setting forth the following facts :
Frequently the pictorial idea can be effectively used, as illustrated below.

the yield of an average hen (135 eggs)
The character of the vote at an election can be set forth by such an arrangement as that shown in the accompanying map.
In the diagram setting forth the facts of negro population, observe that the shading of the portion of the circle representing the negro population is itself an aid to the easy interpretation of the diagram.
