dnd 3.5e – Is the character / wealth table to be taken "by character"?

Does the Wealth Chart of Character by Level, shown on page 135 of the DMG, reflect the wealth that a single PC should have at each level or the party as a whole?

In other words: in the assumption of a level 9 party, is it assumed that each player has access to 36,000 gold coins of wealth? Or should it be about the total wealth of the whole party, which means that each player of a group of 5 level 9 musicians would have on average a personal wealth of 7,200 pieces d & # 39; gold?
