## NCERT Solutions Exercise 9.2 Class 6 Maths | Data Handling

Problems in Exercise 9.2 Class 6 Maths require the knowledge of Drawing Pictographs and their

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.

### Exercise 9.2

**QUESTION 1**

Total number of animals in five villages are as follows :

Village A : 80

Village B : 120

(b) Village B has maximum number of animals.

(c) Village C has more animals than Village A.

**(a)** How many symbols represent total number of students in the year 2002?**(b)** How many symbols represent total number of students for the year 1998?

**B.** Prepare another pictograph of students using any other symbol each representing 50 students. Which pictograph do you find more informative?

**ANSWER**

A) Pictograph of the students using the given symbol which represents 100 students can be drawn as following:

(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:

Pictograph B seems more accurate than the pictograph A because scale of the graph B is more appropriate to represent the data.
