**Reiny**, Sunday, September 30, 2012 at 8:42amoriginal 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)
