### 3 bottles

We have 3 bottles, each containing a certain amount of water. - If we pour cl of water from bottle A to bottle B, B would have times of water as in A.
- If we pour cl of water from bottle B to bottle C, C would have times of water as in B.
- If we pour cl of water from bottle C to bottle A, A would have the same amount of water as C.

How much water there is in each bottle (in centiliters)?

### Equal distance

### Alloy 3 metals

A factory produces alloy from 3 types of recovered metals. The compositions of the 3 recovered metals are as follows. type | iron | nickel | copper |

metal A | % | % | % |

metal B | % | % | % |

metal C | % | % | % |

The factory has received an order of tons of an alloy with % of iron, % of nickel and % of copper. How many tons of each type of recovered metal should be taken in order to satisfy this order?
