Make Picture Graphs: Representation of Data

Jul 28, 2023

Picture graph:

A picture graph or pictograph is a graph that displays information using pictures, images, or symbols.

A picture graph typically has two axes, a scale, pictures to display vertically and horizontally, and a title.

Steps to Make a Picture Graph:

Step 1: Consider the title from the given data or tally chart.

Step 2: Consider a scale that is key.

Step 3: Consider two axes, vertically and horizontally.

Example of Picture Graph:

Record the data in the form of a tally chart, and select a symbol to represent the pictures.

Now draw a picture graph by using symbols and a tally chart.

Example 1:

Amaya found a fruit basket in her house, counted the fruits, and made a tally chart. Draw the picture graph.

Let us take a symbol for the key to drawing the picture graph.

Let us give a title for the picture graph, i.e., the fruits basket graph.

Set up the graph and decide how many symbols should be placed beside each kind of fruit.

Example 2:

See the table of data and find the picture graph.

Solution:

First, we select a symbol,

Symbol:

We get the picture graph as shown below.

Exercise:

1. Use the information in the below tally chart and draw a picture graph.

2. Kattie and her friends bought some donuts, cupcakes, and bread. Draw tally marks to show the number of items in each kind.

3. Ashley and her friends in school bought some toys. Draw a picture graph to show the number of items in each kind.

4. See the tally chart and answer what can be used as a symbol for the picture graph.

5. See the tally chart and draw a picture graph.

Q(6-8) See the tally chart and answer the questions.

6. Draw a picture graph.

7. What can be used as a symbol for the picture graph?

8. If is used as a symbol and each is equal to 2 animals, then how many symbols are placed across the pet animal ‘cat’?

9. Observe the picture graph and mention the symbol used in the picture graph.

10. See the tally chart and draw the picture graph.
