Example: A pictograph below shows the plantation of plants by a school in 6 days of the week.

1 picture of tree represents 10 plants. Which means that total number of plants planted  by the school is:

Monday = 3 x 10 = 30 plants

Tuesday = 7 x 10 = 70 plants

Wednesday = 6 x 10 = 60 plants

Thursday = 8 x 10 = 80 plants

Friday = 4 x 10 = 40 plants

Saturday = 2 x 10 = 20 plants

Total number of plants planted by school in 6 days :

30+70+60+80+40+20 = 300 plants
