# Cups

We have three cups. In the cups we had fluid and boredom we started to shed.

1 We shed one-third of the fluid from the second glass into the first and third.
2 Then we shed one quarter cup of liquid from the first to the second and to the third.
3 Then we shed one-fifth of the liquid from the third to the first cup and to the second.

Finally remained 8, 10 and 7 dl fluids in cups. How many dl of liquid was in the cups originally?

Result

a =  0 dl
b =  0 dl
c =  0 dl

#### Solution:

The count of variables 11 (a,b,c,d,f,k,l,m,x,y,z) is different from the number of equations 12.
