A farmer grows 196 pounds of potatoes. He sells them to a grocer who divides them into 5 pound and 20 pound bags. if the grocer uses the same number of 5 pounds and 20 pound bags, how many bags of each did he use?

    196 does not divide by 5 evenly so we will have some potatoes left over
    5 n + 20 n = 196
    25 n = 196
    n = 7.84
    use 6 of each
    6*5 = 30
    6*25 = 150
    sum = 180 with 16 pounds left over
    (too bad he does not have 3 more five pound bags)
