    Puzzle: The villager who solved the milk puzzle, can we?

    In a village, there were two milkmen. They used to always go to the town to buy the milk together. One day it so happened that one of the milkmen fell ill. So the other one said, don't worry I'll get it for you as well. They each needed 5L of milk each day. He proceeded to buy the milk for both them. He bought 10L from the shop and reached his friend's house, but in his house, there were 2 cans, one was of 7L and the other was 3L. He managed to divide the milk equally by just using these three cans.

    Can you solve the puzzle how did he divide the milk equally?

    I have tried to depict the cans through MS Paint to get a clearer picture. I drew this in MS Paint.

    It is very simple calculation. The villager has poured half milk in the can of 7 liters and half of the milk in the can of 3 liters and thus he managed to share 3.5 plus 1.5 liters equally as five liters.

    Even this challenging situation would ease
