### Let's Ponder (Discussion 3): It's a "Fair" Representation?

The diagram represents the sales of socks at the bookshop in the months of April and May. In April, she sold 10 pairs of socks.

To report the improved sales to the company, the bookshop auntie represented decided to represent the sales using a 'pictogram'.

Does the above "pictogram" give a fair representation of the socks sold in these 2 months?

What would you suggest to the bookshop owner to present the sales in an 'objective' manner?

1. No. It does not tell the exact value sold.

Group 2

1. It should be the same size.

3. It is inaccurate
Grp:2

1. Use bar graph/ line graph

2. Inaccurate as it is not possible to see the exact value

4. Group 4 :No.Both images are the same and mean the same number but of different size,making it inaccurate and should have multiple pictures instead of resizing it.

5. It is inaccurate and the size of the socks is not the same, therefore, it is not a correct pictogram.

1. Convert this pictogram into a bar chart and put more information.

6. No, it doesn't.

There is no legend nor any axis measurement. The pictogram makes it look like she only sold one pair of socks in both May & April

7. No The size of the socks it bigger in breath

8. No. The unit is different.

9. Instead of increasing the size of the socks. It should make it the same size and more socks instead. Group 3

10. The size of the socks should be the same instead of having a large sock, she could use 9 pairs of socks.

1. Socks to be placed in a straight line

11. No. The size of the socks are different.

12. No. She should use multiple same size of pictures so show the different amount of socks sold.

13. Group 4 :
The above "pictogram" does not give a fair representation of the socks sold in these 2 months as a pictogram should have a legend which shows what represents the amount. The above "pictogram" also does not consist of numbers to describe the number of socks sold for the pictogram, it should have included an axis to further explain the number of socks sold for both months.

14. no the socks is different in size
she should stack the socks instead of resizing it

15. She should have more socks to represent it besides enlarging it

16. No, it isn't fair. Use the same size of socks used to represent April for May Group 1

17. The socke must be the same not different.
