# 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

**Solution:**

Let the quantity of rice be x kg

Then the quantity of wheat be 4x kg

The linear equation formed is

x + 4x = 80

5x = 80

x = 80/5

x = 16

Hence, 4x = 64

Thus, the quantities of rice and wheat consumed in the family are 16 kg and 64 kg respectively.

**✦ Try This:** In a family, the consumption of wheat is two times that of rice. The total consumption of the two cereals is 60 kg. Find the quantities of rice and wheat consumed in the family.

Let the quantity of rice be x kg

Then the quantity of wheat be 2x kg

A/Q

x + 2x = 60

3x = 60

x = 60/3

x = 20

Hence, 2x = 40

Thus, the quantities of rice and wheat consumed in the family are 20 kg and 40 kg respectively.
