Hello, i'm writing an application for a java class that solves the problem where you are given n jugs of arbitrary sizes and have to come up with the steps to reach a certain value.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have figured out(read: did research) how to do this in a different way than the original, but it requires math that I don't know how to solve.

My question is, what is the general method for solving a diophantine equation of the form asub1x+asub2y+...asubnz = something or if you could point me to a paper or article on the subject
