Question

# Pictograph below shows the earnings of 4 people in one year. One full note represents ₹100. There can be half, quarter and three-quarter notes also. Using the pictograph, find how much more money Oliver made when compared to Daniel?

A
500
B
175
C
550
D
525

Solution

## The correct option is C ₹175 From the pictograph,Since one full note represents ₹100, we must have a half-note to represent $$₹100\times \frac12=₹50$$ and a three-quarter note to represent $$₹100\times \frac34=₹75.$$ Oliver's earnings = Four full notes of ₹100 + One half-note of ₹100 =₹(100 + 100 + 100 + 100 + 50) = ₹450 Daniel's earnings = Two full note of ₹100 + One three-quarter note of ₹100 = ₹(100 + 100 + 75) = ₹275 Difference = ₹(450 - 275) = ₹175 Therefore, Oliver earned ₹175 more than Daniel.
