Q17. Task 1 - Graph (Solved) (Pie chart) (Line graph)

The pie chart and the line graph reveal the percentage of food budget spent on restaurant meals, home cooking and the number of meals per year. The data is calibrated in percentage.

From an overall perspective, a dramatic increase is observed in the number of meals families eat at restaurants. The percentage of the family's food budget spent on restaurant meals steadily climbed. Just 10 percent of the food budget was spent on restaurant meals in 1970, and 15 percent in 1980. That percentage more than doubled in 1990, to 35 percent, and rose again in 2000 to 50 percent.

Stating further, in 1970, families ate the same number of meals at fast food and sit-down restaurants. In 1980, families ate slightly more frequently at sit-down restaurants. However, since 1990, fast food restaurants serve more meals to the families than do the sit-down restaurants. In 2000 the percentage of fast food meals reached the pinnacle at almost 90% while the percentage for sitdown restaurant meals was approximately half.

Overall, fast food meals and sitdown restaurant meals eventually started at the same percentage but within 30 years, fast food meals' percentage surpassed its counterpart's to reach the pinnacle.
