    Ok first calulate how mush milk has been used

    3 x 700 = 2100 ( for the children

    500 mml for the wife

    2100 + 500 = 2600 already use

    what is left is 3000- 2600 = 400 mls for the husband

    As we are dividing up a quantity in litres we should convert to millilitres.

    So, 3 litres = 3000ml

    Children --> 3 x 700ml = 2100ml

    Wife --> 500ml

    Children + Wife --> 2600ml

    The mans gets 400ml

    3l=3000 ml 1/2l=500ml

    so the man gets 3000-3*700-500=30000-2100-500=400ml
