    First, we have to find out that how many 5/6 pound bags Chad can fill with one 2 pound bag.
    2 ÷ 5/6 
    2 × 6/5
    = 12/5
    =2.4
    So, he can fill 2.4 bags with one 2 pound bag.
    Now, we just need to multiply 2.4 by a number that will make it a whole number.
    2.4 × 2 = 4.8
    2.4 × 3 = 7.2
    2.4 × 4 = 9.6
    2.4 × 5 = 12
    Now, you see 12 is a whole number. 
    This means that Chad needs to buy 5 of the 2 pound bags to fill 12 of the 5/6 pound bags, and he will have not peanuts leftover.
