a part of monthly expanse of family is constant and remaining varies with the price of wheat. when the rate of wheat is Rs.250 a quintal, the total monthly expenses of the family are Rs.1000 and when it is Rs.240 a quintal, the total monthly expenses are Rs.980, find the total monthly expenses of family when the cost of wheat is Rs.350 a quintal.
So, formulating simultaneous equations based on the data given in the question:
250x + y = 1000 ---i)
240x + y = 980 ---ii)
Subtracting ii) from i), we get,
10x = 20
=> x = 2.
Putting x = 2 in equation i), we have
500 + y = 1000
=> y = 500.
Now, when the cost of wheat is Rs. 350,
we have the monthly expense as:
350 * 2 + 500 = 1200.
Thus, the montly expenditure is Rs. 1200.
is it the wheat thing, the fact that indians eat mainly wheat based foods and that cricket is the most popular sport in india.
if so that is lame.
