what is pictrograph
A Pictograph is a way of showing data using images.
Each image stands for a certain number of things.Example: Apples Sold
Here is a pictograph of how many apples were sold at the local shop over 4 months:
Note that each picture of an apple means 10 apples (and the half-apple picture means 5 apples).
So the pictograph is showing:
- In January 10 apples were sold
- In February 40 apples were sold
- In March 25 apples were sold
- In April 20 apples were sold
Pictograph is the way of expressing the data with the help of pictures. A key picture is used as unit which represents a number of concerned object. For example, the pictograph showing the numbers of cars sold by a company in different years is given below:
Here, the key is "1 image of car = 1000 cars".
