Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will learn about how to use the information shown in a simple pictogram to answer questions.

 

The pictogram below shows the number of packets of crisps eaten by a class of children in one week.

Each picture represents 1 bag of crisps.

 

Mon packet of crispspacket of crispspacket of crispspacket of crispspacket of crispspacket of crispspacket of crisps
Tue packet of crispspacket of crisps
Wed packet of crispspacket of crisps
Thu packet of crispspacket of crispspacket of crispspacket of crisps
Fri packet of crispspacket of crispspacket of crispspacket of crispspacket of crispspacket of crisps

 

We can see that on a Monday, 7 packets of crisps were eaten. 

On Tuesday and Wednesday, 4 packets of crisps were eaten in total. 

 

Let's try an example question using the pictogram. 

 

Example 1

How many packets of crisps were eaten in total during the week?


Answer

To find the weekly total, we need to add up the daily totals.

7 + 2 + 2 + 4 + 6 = 21

The total number of packets of crisps eaten that week is 21

 

Example 2

On which day were the most crisps eaten?

 

Answer

Just by looking at the pictogram, we can see that Monday has the largest number of pictures of packets of crisps. 

So, Monday was the day most crisps were eaten.
