Assume a bag of wheat costs =$1.00 per pound

Then a bag of rice would cost =$1.20 per pound

1.00 - [1.00/1.20] = **16 2/3 % - This is how much cheaper wheat is per pound**. [Units don't matter, whether they are in pounds, kg, tons....etc.]

This means that if 1 pound of rice cost $1, then the cost of 1 pound of wheat would be: $1 - [0.1667 * $1] =0.8333 cents.
