**PsyDAG**, Wednesday, April 3, 2013 at 10:29pmPlease do not use all caps. Not only is it harder to read, but it is like SHOUTING online. Thank you.

Every 6 bags would come out exactly.

6(5/6) = 5 lbs

So you are looking for an even multiple of 5.

**teku**, Sunday, February 9, 2014 at 9:18pmEach 2-pound bag will yield 2x 1/6 pounds of left over, which is 2/6 pounds left over per 2-pound bag. 3x 2-pound bags will yield (2/6 + 2/6 +2/6) = 6/6 = 1 pound. No peanuts left with 3 bags.

Please show the math to show 6 bags. Thanks!

**Anonymous**, Tuesday, March 4, 2014 at 8:17pmteku, 3 2 lb bag is incorrect because the bag that you calculated is 6/6. The question clearly states the bag has to be 5/6 lb per bag.

With 5 two lbs bags, you will have a total of 12 bags of 5/6 lbs of peanuts.

**Ali**, Thursday, April 3, 2014 at 7:08pmIt is simple, you have to see that at what stage the nominator gets divisible by denominator, because u dont want any left over. so it is sixth stage. 5/6 +5/6 + 5/6 +5/6 + 5/6 + 5/6 = 30/6 , you need 6 bags.

**Av**, Friday, May 16, 2014 at 6:58amActually, Teku is correct. The result would yield a quantity of 6 bags @5/6 lb per bag. Given that the initial bag from which the bags are filled are 2lb quantities, one would indeed need 3 2lb bags divided into 6 5/6th bags with a result of 0 remaining. Thanks teku

**Colette**, Tuesday, February 10, 2015 at 2:19pmYou need five two lb bags to make 12 5/6 lb bags with no peanuts left over. Each two pound bag yields two 5/6 lb bags with 2/6 lb left over.

1st 2 lb bag = 5/6+5/6+2/6(2/6 left over)

2nd 2 lb bag = 5/6+5/6+2/6(4/6 left over)

3rd 2 lb bag = 5/6+5/6+2/6(6/6 left over)

4th 2 lb bag = 5/6+5/6+2/6(8/6 left over)

5th 2 lb bag = 5/6+5/6+2/6(10/6 left over)

Once you get to 10/6 left over, you can make that into two 5/6lb bags.
