Pour the remaining contents of the seven liter/gallon container into the nine liter/gallon container. Empty the five liter/gallon container. math: 7 - 5 = 2 four times ---> 4 * 2 = 8 My System Specs

It has 5 times number 20, 3 times number 15, 3 times number 10 and 6 times number 5. Now change the order of these numbers so that all 4 lines (horizontal, vertical, both diagonals) gives a sum of 55. My System Specs
