    Just answer the first part by trial and error. How many 6-packs, 9-packs, and 20-packs can I buy to get exactly 50 (etc.) nuggets. For example, for 21 nuggets: 21 = 9 + 6 + 6 So I could get to 21 nuggets by buying 2 6-packs, 1 9-pack, and 0 20-packs. Now find sets of numbers that will work for 50, 51, ... 55
