**Removing a Piece from a Pie Chart**

When the sum of the elements in the first input argument is equal to or greater than `1`

, `pie`

and `pie3`

normalize the values. So, given a vector of elements *x*, each slice has an area of *x*_{i}*/sum(x*_{i}*)*, where *x*_{i}` `

is an element of *x*. The normalized value specifies the fractional part of each pie slice.

When the sum of the elements in the first input argument is less than `1`

, `pie`

and `pie3`

do not normalize the elements of vector `x`

. They draw a partial pie. For example,
