Ok... Jokes apart, lets see... what are our options.

I believe the below will work as well.

Start pouring as below.

(19, 1, 0)
(12, 1, 7)
(12, 8, 0)
(5, 8, 7)
(5, 13, 2)
(18, 0, 2)
(11, 2, 7)
(11, 9, 0)
(4, 9, 7)
(4, 13, 3)
(17, 0, 3)
(17, 3, 0)
(10, 3, 7)
(10, 10)

Tip:
• The fundamental idea needs to be sketched out before we start pouring water on each other.
• Label the Jugs A, B and C to make it easy to compute
Your current status is (0 , 13, 7).
Make it (19, 1, 0), and then pour from A to C and from A to B. Keep doing it, until you finish... hee hee....

If you know about trilinear coordinates it would come in handy.

Hopefully the above is correct.

I'm still very eager about the four step process.
