    original in A is 2x
    and in B is 5x

    A) half of A into B
    jug A now has 2x - x = x
    jug B now has 5x + x = 6x
    new ratio is x : 6x = 1 : 6

    B) half of B into A
    B has 5x - 5x/2 = 5x/2
    A now has 5x + 5x/2 = 5x/2
    New ration = 5x/2 : 5x/2 = 1 : 1

    Follow my method to do C)
