CHAD BUYS PEANUTS IN 2-POUND BAGS. HE REPACKAGES THEM INTO BAGS THAT HOLD 5/6 POUNDS OF PEANUTS. HOW MANY 2-POUND BAGS OF PENUTS SHOULD CHAD BUY SO THAT HE CAN FILL THE 5/6 POUND BAGS WITHOUT HAVING ANY PEANUTS LEFT OVER?

    Please 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.

    6 bags

    Each 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!

    teku, 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.

    It is simple, you have to see that at what stage the nominator gets divisible by denominator, because u don't 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.

    Actually, 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

    You 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.

    I think its 10 because 5/6 equals 5 pounds not six like its supose to so then that makes 1/6 lefted over so if u
    do

    2 bags are in one bag that is 5/6 witch leaves u with 3/6 of the bag left so do that 5 times..........and u have nothing left over like



    5/6=2bags 5/6=2bags 5/6=2bags 5/6=2bags 5/6=2bags which gives u 10 i think i am wrong but i treid
