an 11 liters container and a 7 liters container.

And now the Cardano problem with three thieves :
Three thieves want to share a barrel of wine containing 24 liters, using the barrel, and three containers 5, 11 and 13 liters.
Solution

Measure 30 cl into each of the two measures, without spilling anything.
Solution
