There are 1000 ml in a liter, so multiply 6 by 1000 and then divide it by your bucket size.

First: Fill the 500 liter tank Second: Pour the water to the 300 liter tank, thus the 500 liter tank will now have 200 liters Third: Dispose of the water in the 300 liter tank Fourth: Pour the remaining content of the 500 liter tank(which is 200 liters) to the 300 liter tank Fifth: Fill the 500 liter tank(the 300 liter tank still has the 200 liters in it) Sixth: Pour the water from the 500 liter tank to the 300 liter tank(which already has 200 liters in it) Thus the remaining amount of water in the 500 liter tank is 400 liters

This method works with any such problem, as long as the two buckets' liter-capacities (or gallon capacities, etc.) have no common factors, or else the common factors are also factors of the amount you're trying to measure. Fill the 7-liter bucket, and empty 5 liters of it into the 5-liter bucket; then dump out the 5 liters. Two liters will remain in the 7-liter bucket; transfer them to the 5-liter bucket. Fill the 7-liter bucket again, and empty enough of the bucket into the 5-liter bucket to fill it. That should only be 3 liters transfered, leaving 4 liters left in the 7-liter bucket. QED.

There are two easy ways to do these with these resources: The first one is to simply fill the two litre bucket half full and fill the four litre bucket to the brim and then, all together, in both buckets you have five litres: Voila The second one is slightly more complex you fill the four litre bucket three quatre full and then fill the other bucket to the brim: Voila As well as these there are many more more complex answers to this questions
