  1. Take the 7 jars that are full and, for each one, pour half of it into one of the empty jars. Then, give everyone 7 jars and they will all have 3.5 units of water.

  3. take 4 half-full jars and make them '2 full jars + 2 empty jars'.
    now we have 9 full jars, 3 half-full jars and 9 empty jars. this can be divided easily into three as: 3 full jars, 1 half-full jar and 3 empty jars.
