You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Create a report containing a list to show for each film director:

  • A table of the films they have made; and
  • A pie chart comparing box office takings for each film

Apply page breaks so that each director's details appear on a separate page.  For instance:

The films made by Peter Jackson - all having roughly equal box office takings

You may find rectangles useful to help things maintain their position.  Oh, and a lot of patience!

Here's another sample, showing that James Cameron should stick to Titanic:

The Abyss - a bottomless pit of money?

Save your report as The kitchen sink, and close it down.
