Chad buys peanuts in 2 pound bags. He repackages them into bags that hold 5/6 pound of peanuts. How many 2 pound bags of peanuts should Chad buy so that he can fill the 5/6 pound bags without having any peanuts left over?

So then, the question is really what number that is a multiple of 2 when divided by 5/6 does not have a remainder.

Then 10/ 5/6 = 60/5 = 12  works

So, 10 / 2 = FIVE 2 pound bags.
