THE HONEST DAIRYMAN.





(Measuring, Weight, and Packing Puzzles.)
An honest dairyman in preparing his milk for public consumption employed
a can marked B, containing milk, and a can marked A, containing water.
From can A he poured enough to double the contents of can B. Then he
poured from can B into can A enough to double its contents. Then he
finally poured from can A into can B until their contents were exactly
equal. After these operations he would send the can A to London, and the
puzzle is to discover what are the relative proportions of milk and
water that he provides for the Londoners' breakfast-tables. Do they get
equal proportions of milk and water--or two parts of milk and one of
water--or what? It is an interesting question, though, curiously enough,
we are not told how much milk or water he puts into the cans at the
start of his operations.
