Puzzle: Of wine and water…
There is a wine glass filled with 1000 spoonful of wine. There is a water beaker with 2000 spoonful of water.
You take a spoon of water from the beaker and put it in the wine glass and mix it thoroughly. Then you take one spoon of the stuff (mostly wine with a little water) from the wine glass and put it in the water beaker and mix it thoroughly.
You do the whole thing over again. And one more time (so total of three times).
Of course increasingly the water beaker is getting more wine and vice versa.
Question is at the end of the third full round, do you have more wine (by volume) in the water beaker or more water (by volume) in the wine glass and by how much?
Here is a tougher version… what if after the above three cycles, you did the water beaker to wine glass one more time and stopped? (You did not do the wine glass to water beaker to complete the cycle; essentially three and a half cycles). Now, do you have more wine (by volume) in the water beaker or more water (by volume) in the wine glass and by how much?
Instead of putting your answer (and how you arrived at it) in the Comments section, write to me directly in messenger.
