2. 10 -3 11/12 - (3 11/12 - 1 2/5) = 10 - 47/12 - (47/12 - 7/5) =
10 - 47/12 - 47/12 + 7/5 = 10 -94/12 + 7/5 = 50/5 + 7/5 - 94/12 =
57/5 - 94/12 = 684/60 - 470/60 = 214/60 = 3 34/60 = 3 17/30 Liters needed.

Note: The sum of my number and Steve's should be 10.

Check: 6 13/30 + 3 17/30 = 9 + 30/30 = 10. Yes!!.
