You have a 7-liter, and an 11-liter container with no markings on them. Both are empty. You may fill up any of them from the water faucet any number of times, you may empty any of them any time, and you may pour water from one container to the other any number of times. using only these steps, can you get 2 liters of water in one of the containers?
