Pictographs of Wages of Carpenters in 2 Different Countries
 Statement: Carpenters in Country 1 make 1/2 as much as Carpenters in Country 2.
 The first one is inaccurate and the second one is correct.
 First Picture doubled the height of the smaller money sack, but then the artist had to make the width larger for the money sacks to be proportional.
 According to the first picture 4 of the smaller money sacks can fit into the larger one. Therefore Carpenters in Country 1 make 1/4 as much as carpenters in Country 2?
