You hadn't given your reasoning, so I was confused.
If you're multiplying by the reciprocal, this will give the same result as dividing by the improper fraction. Convert the result back to a mixed number. The whole-number part is the number of same-size piles (bags, whatever); the fractional part is the remainder.
You haven't provided units, so it's hard to say precisely what that remainder will represent, but it relates to how much the person gets.
