# Calculating how many different items to use

A user inputs an amount of water they need, I need to calculate which bottles to use, either 10l bottles or 20l bottles. So if they ask for 67l, the script pops up with 3x20l and 1x10l

I have tried the following 2 solutions

``````    var resinAm = rsize*1.1*2.5
var resTin = '';
if(resinAm<10){
resTin = 1;
} else {
resTin = resinAm/20;
resTin = Math.ceil(resTin);
}
``````

and this

``````    var resAm = resinAm;
var resAm10 = (resAm/10)+0.001;
var resAm20 = (resAm/20)*2;
if(resAm10>resAm20){
resTin10 = 1;
resTin20 = Math.floor(resAm/20);
} else {
resTin20 = Math.ceil(resAm/20);
}
``````

I have also tried using modulo, but it always comes out with an extra 20l bottle, 70.5l came out as 5x20l and 1x10l

How do I fix this

Check the code at: https://jsfiddle.net/a4k2cyoy/2/

``````var resAm = 70.5;

var resAm20 = parseInt(resAm / 20);
var resAm10 = 0;

if(resAm % 20 > 10) {
resAm20++;
}

if(resAm % 20 <= 10 && resAm > 0) {
resAm10++;
}

alert(resAm + " will go into " + resAm20 + " x 20 bottles and " + resAm10 + " x 10 bottles");
``````
