1. The equation 7 + 9 + 5 + 48 + x = 100 represents the sum of the percentages of each section and the percent of adoptions that were cats is 31

### How does the equation relate to the circle graph?

The equation of the circle graph is given as:
7 + 9 + 5 + 48 + x = 100
From the above equation
7, 9, 5, 48 and x represent the proportion of each part of the circle graph
This means that the equation represents the sum of the percentages of each section
Hence, the equation 7 + 9 + 5 + 48 + x = 100 represents the sum of the percentages of each section

### How can you use this equation to find the percent of adoptions that were cats?

We have:
7 + 9 + 5 + 48 + x = 100
Evaluate the sum
69 + x = 100
Subtract 69 from both sides
x = 31
Hence, the percent of adoptions that were cats is 31
