In this media, you will learn how to draw a Pictograph.
Consider the data that represents the number of failures in a class of 30 students during monthly tests.
Tests have been conducted from August to December.
The number of failures from August to December are 10, 8, 1, 3 and 0 respectively.
Let us draw a pictograph for the given data.
The picture represents one failure.
So, there should be 10 pictures in the August row.
Similarly, the pictures should be placed in every row.
Note that there will be no pictures in the December row.
Thus, a pictograph is drawn for the given data, where each picture represents single quantity.
In some situations, a picture has to take more than one quantity.
For example, a watch manufacturing company has manufactured certain number of watches over a week.
The number of watches manufactured over a week are 900, 850, 730, 800, 1000 and 760.
In this case, a picture should represent 100 watches.
Therefore, 9 pictures should be drawn in Monday row, since 900 watches were manufactured.
But, on Tuesday 850 watches were manufactured.
So, 8 pictures are drawn for 800 watches and an incomplete picture is drawn to represent 50 watches.
Therefore, eight and a half pictures are drawn to represent 850 watches.
Similarly, for Saturday’s row, seven and half pictures are drawn.
Thus, you now learned about drawing a pictograph
