**Solution:**

A circle graph or pie chart shows the relationship between a whole and its parts.

Here, Total angle = 360° and Total number of people = 36

The central angle for each color can be calculated as shown below:

Colors |
Number of People |
Fraction (Number of people/36) |
Central Angles |

Blue | 18 | 18/36 = 1/2 | 1/2 × 360° = 180° |

Green | 9 | 9/36 = 1/4 | 1/4 × 360° = 90° |

Red | 6 | 6/36 = 1/6 | 1/6 × 360° = 60° |

Yellow | 3 | 3/36 = 1/12 | 1/12 × 360° = 30° |
