Three friends

John, Peter, and Pablo each carried a 24 liters bucket full of water down the hill. After they reached the bottom, John's bucket was only 3/4 full, Peter's bucket was 2/3 full, and Pablo's was 1/6 full.
How much liters of water did they spill altogether on their way down?

Correct result:

s =  34 l

Solution:

V=24 l q=34+23+16=19121.5833  s=3 VV q=3 2424 1.5833=34 l
