Last week I showed you the chart below.
The chart below shows the proportions of adults in Canada who own one car, two cars, more than two cars, or who do not own a car.
As several people commented below last week's lesson, we can describe a pie chart even if the numbers are not shown. Here are some example sentences:
- Just over half of all adults in Canada own one car.
- Roughly 50% of Canadian adults own one car, while approximately 25% of adults in Canada own two cars.
- Less than a quarter of Canadians do not own a car.
- Only a very small percentage (under 5%) of Canadian adults own more than two cars.
Remember: the full pie is always 100%, so it's easy for us to guess approximate proportions.
