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?
Give a reason to your answer.

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

  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

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

  12. 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.
