# Drawing a Pictograph:

The following are the details of the number of students present in a class of 30 during a week. Represent it by a pictograph.

 Days Number of students present Monday 24 Tuesday 26 Wednesday 28 Thursday 30 Friday 29 Saturday 22

With the assumptions, we have made earlier,
24 may be represented by

26 may be represented by and so on.

Thus, the pictograph would be

#### Example

Total number of animals in five villages are as follows:

Village A: 80

Villages B: 120

Village C: 90

Village D: 40

Village E: 60

Prepare a pictograph of these animals using one symbol ⊗ to represent 10 animals and answer the following questions:

(a) How many symbols represent animals of village E?

(b) Which village has the maximum number of animals?

(c) Which village has more animals: village A or village C?

The pictograph for the given data can be drawn as follows.

 Village Number of animals ⊗ − 10 animals Village A ⊗⊗⊗⊗⊗⊗⊗⊗ Village B ⊗ ⊗ ⊗ ⊗ ⊗ ⊗ ⊗ ⊗ ⊗ ⊗ ⊗ ⊗ Village C ⊗ ⊗ ⊗ ⊗ ⊗ ⊗ ⊗ ⊗ ⊗ Village D ⊗ ⊗ ⊗ ⊗ Village E ⊗ ⊗ ⊗ ⊗ ⊗ ⊗

(a) 6 symbols will represent animals of village E as there were 60 animals in this village.

(b) Village B has the maximum number of animals i.e., 120.

(c) Village A and C have 80 and 90 animals in it. Clearly, Village C has more animals.
