Answer :

Given the details of two families A and B.


A: 4 men, 6 women and 2 children


B: 2 men, 2 women and 4 children

The calorie and protein requirements for different types of people are also given.


Men: 2400 calories, 45gm proteins


Women: 1900 calories, 55gm proteins


Children: 1800 calories, 33gm proteins


Hence, the required calories and proteins can be represented in matrix form with each row corresponding to different type of people as –



Now, the required number of calories and proteins for each of the two families can be obtained by taking the product of the matrices X and Y.






Thus, the requirement of calories and protein is as follows –


Family A: 24600 calories and 576 grams protein


Family B: 15800 calories and 332 grams protein


It can be said that a balanced diet with proper amounts of calories and protein must be consumed by the people of all ages in order to lead a healthy life.
