[edit] Hints

Hint One
    You can use the same strategy you used for the juice puzzle on this puzzle.

    Simply shifting some milk over to one of the smaller pitchers won't get you the five quarts you need. Pay attention to what remains when you pour some milk into the smallest pitcher.

Hint Two
    Pour milk from the 10-quart pitcher into the seven-quart pitcher. Then take the contents of that pitcher and pour what you can into the three-quart pitcher. This leaves you with four quarts in the seven-quart pitcher. After that, return the contents of the three-quart pitcher to the 10-quart pitcher and refill the smallest pitcher using the seven-quart pitcher. This should leave you with one quart in the seven-quart pitcher. Next...

Hint Three
    Now you should have one quart left in your seven-quart pitcher. Empty the contents of your smallest pitcher into the 10-quart pitcher, then pour the one quart into the smallest pitcher.
    You should now have nine quarts left in your 10-quart pitcher, so pour seven of them into the middle pitcher.
