In this alternate Earth, all the species of fish, amphibian, reptile, mammal and bird combine to make up only 0.5% of all animal life on the planet (presented on the pie chart in blue.) It doesn't sound much compared to the two or three percent back home, but it's still quite a lot of invertebrates!

As with back home, the other 80% of animals on this alternate Earth make up the arthropods.

By merging the two presented pies into one, how much would be reserved for the arthropods?

    $\begingroup$ I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this isn't about worldbuilding. This is about using Microsoft Excel or <your favorite spreadsheet program>. Follow these steps to make the pie chart: wikihow.com/Make-a-Pie-Chart-in-Excel $\endgroup$ – SRM Jan 16 '17 at 2:57

    $\begingroup$ Your getting lazy man. You take all that time to prepare these unending lists of stuff but can't make a pie chart? $\endgroup$ – Vincent Jan 16 '17 at 4:47

80% of 99.5% is 79.6%

$$.80 * .995 = .796$$

  • $\begingroup$ @JohnWDailey: It looks like a number. $\endgroup$ – AlexP Jan 16 '17 at 1:49
  • $\begingroup$ I can't see 79.6%. I need to SEE the two pie charts meshed into one. $\endgroup$ – JohnWDailey Jan 16 '17 at 2:48
  • $\begingroup$ There's no percentages listed on your pie chart, so there's no way to blend the two pie charts. Put the number labels on there. $\endgroup$ – SRM Jan 16 '17 at 2:52
