Actually both are equal.

Lets say wine bucket contains Xw amount of wine and water bucket contains Xh amount of water (Xw = Xh)
Now a cup of wine (Cw)  is removed and poured in water, thus total wine is bucket is Xw - Cw.
and bucket of water contains Xh + Cw.
Now from this a cup is taken and poured back in wine lets say it contained Cw2+h2 amount of mixture, thus now we have
in bucket of wine total liquid is ( Xw-Cw ) + Cw2+h2; and in bucket of water
Xh + Cw - ( Cw2+h2)

Thus total water in wine is h2 and total wine in water is Cw - Cw2; so now we have to compare h2 and Cw-Cw2
Now since the volume of the cup remains same we have
Cw = Cw2 + h2
=> h2 = Cw - Cw2

Hence the amount of wine in water and water in wine is the same.

Message 3 of 6 , May 3, 2003
Interesting puzzle.
Assuming each bucket contains 9 cups - water in one and wine in the other.

When you transter one cup of wine, 8 cups of wine are left but the water
bucket content increases to 10 cups out of which only 1 cup i.e. 1/10
is wine in the mixture. When one cup of mixture is transfered to the wine
only 1/10 of the mixture contain 1/10th of  wine in the mixture in the cup
goes  with the mixture and 1/9 th cup wine remians in the bucket.
But the cup mixture contains 1/9 th cup water that goes to wine bucket.

So after second transfer the wine content in water bucket and the
water content in wine bucket are equal.

Message 5 of 6 , Jul 16, 2003
--both are equal. The reason is best illustrated in the following
example. Shuffle a pack of cards without joker and halve into two
such that one half contains only red suits and the other half only
black suits. Now transfer four red cards into black pile and shuffle
the black and red pile well and again effect transfer any four cards
of the mixtured pile back to red pile. You will find it surprisingly
that number of black cards in red piles equals exactly number of red
cards in black pile. This explains your problem.
