Solution

Amount of sugar consumed by a family of 4 members = 6 kg

Amount of sugar consumed by a family of 1 member = $\frac{6}{4}\mathrm{kg}$

Amount of sugar consumed by a family of 6 members = $\frac{6}{4}\times 6=9\mathrm{kg}$

Amount of sugar consumed by a family of 1 member = $\frac{6}{4}\mathrm{kg}$

Amount of sugar consumed by a family of 6 members = $\frac{6}{4}\times 6=9\mathrm{kg}$
