Pictograph is one of methods to represent data graphically (visually). A Pictograph represents data in the form of pictures, objects or parts of objects.

Previously in Exercise 9.1 we have learnt how to interpret a pictograph and answer the related questions.

We can draw pictographs using symbols to represent a certain number of items or things.

(a) Six symbols represent the total number of students for the year 2002.

(b) Five and two-fifth symbols represent the total number of students for the year 1998.

B) Pictograph of the students using another symbol which represents 50 students can be drawn as following:
