PICTOGRAPH

**PICTOGRAPH -**

**A pictograph is a type of data visualization that uses pictures or symbols to represent data points or quantities. It's a way of conveying information through visual representations that are easy to understand, especially for audiences who might not be familiar with numerical data or charts.**

**In
Statistics, pictographs are charts that are used to represent data using icons
and images relevant to the data. A
key is often included in a pictograph that indicates what each icon or image represents. All icons in the pictogram
must be of the same size, but we can
use the fraction of an icon to show the respective fraction of that amount.
Let us understand the concept
of pictographs using
examples.**

**In a pictograph, each picture or symbol represents a certain quantity, and the quantity is often indicated by the number of times that picture or symbol appears. Pictographs are commonly used in various fields, including education, statistics, communication, and advertising.**

__What is Pictograph?__

**In
mathematics, a pictograph, also known as a pictogram, is the pictorial representation of data using images, icons, or symbols. We can represent the frequency of data while using symbols or
images that are relevant using a pictograph. Pictographs are one of the simplest
ways of representing data.**

__Pictograph Definition:-__

**"A
pictograph is a representation of data using images or symbols."
Pictographs in maths are typically
used in concepts like data handling. They help in laying the foundation for data interpretation based
on pictorial information. Now after knowing
the pictograph definition, let us understand pictographs using a scenario.**

**A pictograph is a graphical representation of data using pictures or symbols to convey information. Each picture or symbol in a pictograph represents a specific quantity or value. Pictographs are often used to make data more accessible and understandable, especially for audiences who may have difficulty interpreting numerical or textual information. They are commonly employed in various fields, including education, statistics, storytelling, and communication, to visually represent data in a simplified and intuitive manner.**

__Pictograph Example:-__

**A survey was conducted for 40 children
by a fast food junction
to understand the demand
for different flavors of pizza available in their outlet. The results were as follows:-**

**Can
you identify the most loved flavor by observing the above table? If 1 full
pizza represents 4 children, then what would a quarter
slice represent? The scenario that we
discussed above represents information in a pictographic manner. Here, the symbol for a full pizza is used to
represent data (i.e. the number of students). We need to do simple math to understand how many children voted for
each of the flavors. Multiply the
number of symbols for the given flavor with the value of each symbol.**

**For example,
the number of children who liked Pepperoni = 2 1/4 × 4 **

**= 2 × 4 + (1/4) × 4 **

**= 8 + 1
= 9**
