In a family, the consumption of wheat is 4 times that of rice. The total consumption of the two cereals is 80 kg. Find the quantities of rice and wheat consumed in the family.

Answer :

As per the given information in the question, total consumption of the cereals = 80kg

Let x be the consumption of rice.

Then, consumption of wheat = 4x

According to the question,

x + 4x = 80

5x = 80

Consumption of wheat = 4x = 4 × 16 = 64 kg.

Hence, the consumption rice and wheat are 16kg and 64 kg, respectively.
