Pie Chart with only 5 datasets/arrays (Noob)

I’m just getting started (noob) - I’m confused about using the pie chart to represent data - I converted data into 360 degrees but it still doesn’t seem to be working. Any advice?

Here’s the code for reference:

let angles = [72, 90, 108, 18, 72];
function setup() {
  createCanvas(720, 400);
  noLoop(); // Run once and stop

function draw() {
  pieChart(300, angles);

function pieChart(diameter, data) {
  let lastAngle = 0;
  for (let i = 0; i < data.length; i++) {
    let gray = map(i, 0, data.length, 0, 255);
      width / 2,
      height / 2,
      lastAngle + radians(angles[i])
    lastAngle += radians(angles[i]);

When I added another array of even 1 in the lets angle it started to work but I have no idea how to make it work with only 5 datasets.

-a- your code is not posted / formatted as code, please use the

to repair above.

-b- you make a function and hand down the pointer to ‘angles’ with ‘data’
so inside the function should not be used the variable ‘angles’, only ‘data’

-c- with some math to distribute the circle 2 * PI acc. the count and values from the data
it looks better:


Oh wow I am dumb - looks like it was working all along. Massive thank you for the response, that was useful too.
