Since drum is full of rice , so total weight will be :-

Total weight = weight of empty drum + weight of rice

Putting values

➺ 241/6 = 55/4 + R(weight of rice)

➺ R = 241/6 - 55/4

➺ R = 26.416 kg

➺ R = 26.42 kg

Weight of rice in the drum
= Weight of drum full of rice - Weight of empty drum
= 241/6 - 55/4
= (482  - 165)/12
= 317 / 12 Kg or  26.42 Kg
