Let's Milk=M, Water=W
M=40, W=0
1)M40-M4+W4=M36+W4=40lit...(-4lit)&(+4lit)
2)[M36-(36/40)*4]+[W4-(4/40)*4]...(-4lit)
=M32.4+W3.6
=M32.4+W3.6+W4...........................(+4lit)
=M32.4+W7.6
3)[M32.4-(32.4/40)*4]+[W7.6-(7.6/40)*4]....(-4lit)
=M(32.4-3.24)+W(7.6-0.76)
=M29.16+W6.84
=M29.16+W6.84+W4........(+4lit)
=M29.16+W10.84=40lit
Ans is 29.16 litres milk
