🚕🚕🚕🚕🚕 = 5 cars

🐪🐪🐪🐪🐪🐪🐪 = 7 camels

🚌🚌🚌🚌🚌 = 4 buses

🚚🚚🚚🚚🚚🚚 = 6 lorries


Bar Graph:

It is a way of representing information pictorially, using rectangular bars of equal widths. The spaces between the bars are the same. The height of the bar represents the number of times the event occurs. A bar graph can be horizontal or vertical.
