Unfortunately, the original thread got locked even before I could confirm the answer. The puzzle was not as simple as it seemed, it required few calculations. If it was easy I wouldn't have posted.
#607768 : This answer is not right, "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."
Reason being it's only an assumption that milk in 7L might be half. It's just a rough estimate that the milk which is poured is half. It had to be an exact calculation. Roughly it takes 7 steps to divide it exactly into the half.
Hint: Initially the cans would be
CANS: 10L 7L 3L
First Step 10 0 0
Second Step: 3 7 0
Final should be 5 5 0 or 5 3 2 or 5 0 5.
So, we need to divide it like this. Whoever solves it in minimum steps is the winner.
