Objective / Info: Create a pie chart in Google Docs Presentation.

Open Google Docs by visiting and selecting the "more" link and the "Documents"
In the upper left hand corner, click the "Create New" button, then select the "Spreadsheets" option.
You should see a blank new sheet.
Rename the spreadsheet by clicking the area labeled "Unsaved spreadsheet"

  Note : This is an optional step. I used "pie chart" for this guide.

Type in the new name of the spreadsheet and click the "Save" button.
Populate the data into the cells as pictured.
Select the spreadsheet data that will be contained in the chart. You select by pressing the left click button on the mouse while over cell "A1" and holding it while you drag it across the data you want to select. After all of your data is selected, release the left mouse
Click on the "Insert" button on the menu bar and then select "Chart"
A chart page should appear. Select the "Pie" button, observe the preview to be sure its what you want and click on the "Save Chart" button.
The chart should be inserted into your spreadsheet.
If the chart is covering your data and you want to move it, click on any white space in the chart and drag the chart to another part of the spreadsheet.
Clicking on a piece of the pie will show an annotation that represents that piece.
Make any further edits to the chart or the data in the cells and save your pie chart.
