## The Wine Cellar's Will

Logic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.

 Puzzle ID: #47249 Fun: (2.71) Difficulty: (1.45) Category: Logic Submitted By: fishmed

There once was a somewhat eccentric wine seller who died, leaving three sons behind him. He also left 7 full barrels of wine, 7 half-full barrels of wine, and 7 empty wine barrels. Being somewhat eccentric, he noted in his will that each son was to receive the same number of full barrels, half-full barrels, and empty barrels. How is this possible?

Take two half-full barrels and empty them into two other half-full barrels, making them full barrels. You then have 9 full barrels, 3 half-full barrels, and 9 empty barrels, which are all divisible by 3, giving each son 3 full barrels, 1 half-full barrel, and 3 empty barrels.
