Question

several friends each ad 2/5 of a bag of peanuts left over from a baseball game. they realized that they could have bought two fewer bags of peanuts between them. How many friends went to the game?

2 Answer


  • Well to my knowledge we need to find how many people with that amount equal 2 for the amounts of peanuts. So lets go one by one.


    2 friends = 4/5 of a bag of peanuts left together. - 0.8 left 

    3 friends = 6/5 of a bag of peanuts left together. - 1.2 left 

    4 friends = 8/5 of a bag of peanuts left together. - 1.6 left 

    5 friends = 10/5 of a bag of peanuts left together. - 2 left 

    So, there are 5 friends total.         

    5 friends

  • The answer is 3/5 because they didn't need 2 bags so 3+2 =5 so they all Three of them shared the two bags of peanuts
