    Exp. The graph title is Expenditures for State and Local Governments. The circle is cut into four sectors,
    each representing one category of expenditures, with the percentage of the total for each category. 
    Money spent on highways is $3,500 ( 50,000* 7 /100 ) = 3,500
    State and local governments spent approximately five times more on education than on highways ( 34
    % ).
    Approximately 1/5 of the total is spent on highways and welfare combined.
    ( 7 * 50,000/100 + 14 * 50, 000/100 =  3,500 +  7, 000 = 10,500 )
    45 *50,000/100 =  22,500
