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
