**Reiny**, Wednesday, May 7, 2014 at 7:13pmlet the number of bags needed be n

so 2n ÷ (5/6) must be a whole number

= 2n(6/5)

= 12n/5

The smallest value of n is 5

So he should buy 5 of the 2 lbs bags

Check:

if n=5 , he will have 10 lbs.

number of smaller bags he can fill

= 10 ÷ (5/6)

= 10(6/5)

= 12 ---> exact number of bags, no peanuts left over.
