Two cans x and y both contain some water. From x, Jim pours as much water into y as y already contains. Then from y, he pours as much water into x as y presently has. Finally, he pours from x to y as much water as y presently has. Each can now contains 24 ounces of water. How many ounces of water were in each can at the start?
