This question is from the official guide and I'm certain that I'm overlooking something simple (but crucial). The explanation given was horrendous so can someone help me understand the answer? Thanks.
Q: Equal amounts of water are poured into two empty jars of different capacity which made one 1/4 full and the other 1/3 full. Water in the lesser capacity jar is poured into the jar with greater capacity. How full of water is the larger jar now?
I can't get how it will be 1/2 and not 7/12
I guess we just complicating the simple problem
the key words are
Equal amounts of water
and one 1/4 full
Water from lesser jar is poured into the jar with greater capacity
so if Equal amounts of water
is poured into one 1/4 full
it is clear that the jar becomes 1/2 full
