What is the Rice to Water Ratio?
The amount water need to cook a certain amount of rice is called rice to water ratio. Different types of rice require different amounts of water. For example, white rice typically needs 1.5 cups of water per cup of rice, while brown rice needs 2 cups of water per cup of rice.
Formula
The formula to calculate the rice to water ratio is:
$\text{WaterNeeded}=\text{RiceAmount}\times \text{WaterperCupofRice}$
Variables
 Rice Amount: The total amount of rice used (in cups).
 Water per Cup of Rice: The specific amount of water needed per cup of rice, which varies by rice type.
How To Calculate Rice To water Ratio
Example 1
 Total Amount of Rice Used (cups): 2
 Type of Rice: White Rice (1.5 cups of water per cup of rice)
Calculation Steps:
1. Identify the type of rice and its water requirement:

 White Rice: 1.5 cups of water per cup of rice.
2. Use the formula:

 $\text{WaterNeeded}=2\times 1.5$
3. Calculate the result:

 $\text{WaterNeeded}=3\text{cups}$
Result:
 For 2 cups of white rice, you need 3 cups of water.
Example 2
 Total Amount of Rice Used (cups): 3
 Type of Rice: Brown Rice (2 cups of water per cup of rice)
Calculation steps:
1. Identify the type of rice and its water requirement:

 Brown Rice: 2 cups of water per cup of rice.
2. Use the formula:

 $\text{WaterNeeded}=3\times 2$
3. Calculate the result:

 $\text{WaterNeeded}=6\text{cups}$
Result:
 For 3 cups of brown rice, you need 6 cups of water.
