 Question from Hope: How do you turn a percentage in to a central angle eg. 11%

Hi Hope,

I think you have a circle and are looking at its sector of the circle with a central angle of 13% of the central angle of the circle. Since the central angle of the entire circle measures $360^o$ the central angle of the sector measures 11% of 360 degrees or $0.11 \times 360$ degrees.
