    the three containers

    We have three containers which hold 19, 13 and 7 ounces of liquid respectively. The 19 ounce container is empty but the 13 and 7 ounces containers are full. How can we measure out 10 ounces by using only the three above mentioned containers?
    pls explain in detail

    now do as :
    0 0 19
    7 0 12
    0 7 12
    7 7 5
    0 13 5
    7 6 5
    7 0 11
    0 7 11
