I have a 10 cup,7,cup,3 cup container I have to pour water from container to container until I have exactly 5 cups How do I get this to equal 5 cups

First pour water in 7 cup container. then pour all the water of 7 cup into 10 cup. now we get 7 cup water in 10 cup container. again pour water in 7 cup container. and again pour water in 10 cup container. the water is already in 10 cup container which is 7 cup and the water of 3 cup will be poured form 7 cup. So we get 10 cup container full. and we get 4 cup water in 7 cup container. now we empty the whole 3 cup container and fill it from 10 cup. then the water in 10 cup container will be of 7 cup. and we again empty the whole 3 cup container. and again pour water in it from 7 cup container. the water is now 4 cups in 7 cup container. and if you remember that we got 1 cup water in seven cup container also. So we pour 1 cup water of 7 cup container in the 10 cup container. and hence the water is 5 cups in 10 cups container.
