4.6 The Cook Oil Sharing Puzzle
Cally, Katy, and Jasnah buy a bulk container of 24 litres of cooking oil. The problem is that they intend to divide it evenly into 8-litre amounts in three different containers. The other two containers are 13 litres and 11 litres. They have a small 5 litre container that can be used. Katy comes up with a solution, and they all agree that dividing the oil will require seven careful steps. Can you find Katy’s solution or find one that takes fewer steps?
