Wine barrels solution

Two half-full barrels are dumped into one of the empty barrels. Two more half-full barrels are dumped into another one of the empty barrels. This results in nine full barrels, three half-full barrels, and nine empty barrels. Each son gets three full barrels, one half-full barrel, and three empty barrels.

    My solution was a bit different, but yielded the same distribution: combine a half barrel with another half barrel, resulting in one newly full and one newly empty barrel. Repeat the process once more to achieve the 9 full, 3 half-full, and 9 empty barrels.
