83. Chad buys a peanuts that is 2 pounds bag. He wanted to repacked it into bags that is 5/6 pound of peanuts. Let’s find the number of peanuts in pounds that he need to buy to be able to get rid of left overs. => 5/6 pounds = 0.83 pounds => 2 pounds / 0.83 = 2 bags with the leftover of .41 pound Plus 2 pounds of peanut bag => 2.41 / 0.83 = 2 bags with left over of .90 pound Plus 2 pounds of peanut bag => 2.9 / .83 = 3 bags with left over of .50 pound Plus 2 pounds of peanut bag => 2.5 / .83 = 3 pounds, He needs around 8 pounds of peanut bags to get rid of left overs,
