# Reading picture graphs

Interpret picture graphs (pictographs) to answer single-step questions about a context.

### Reading picture graphs

Picture graphs use pictures or symbols to represent data. Let's look at the picture graph below.

Hopper the rabbit and her friends are collecting carrots. They made a picture graph to show how many carrots each of them collected.

Each

represents ${3}$ carrots collected by the rabbits. Since Hopper has ${4}$

above her name in the picture graph, we can multiply to find out how many carrots she collected.

Hopper collected $12$ carrots.

We can follow the same steps to find how many carrots each of Hopper's friends collected.

### Example $1$ : Flowers

John graphed the number of flowers he planted in his garden.

### Example $2$ : Boat captains

Four boat captains, Ron, Dora, Jess, and Mark made a graph of the number of whales they saw while at sea last month.

### Example 3: Creating a picture graph then reading it

Alyssa counts sheep to help her go to sleep. She made a table of how many sheep she counted over the past four days.

Day | Number of sheep counted |
---|---|

Monday | |

Tuesday | |

Wednesday | |

Thursday |

Now that we have created our picture graph, let's answer some questions.
