Logic word problem
I have the following word problem that I just can’t figure out.
Austin, Devin, Olivia and William want to make an ice-cream. Each one has different amounts of milk (three, seven, five and four quarts). A container of ice cream needs 3 cups of milk and 2 cups of sugar. Determine the amount of milk and sugar that each person has.

1. The person that has 10 cups of sugar has 2 cups less sugar than milk.
2. If Olivia has 6 times more milk, she would have 10 gallons and 2 quarts of milk.
3. If Devin has 7 cups more sugar, Devin would have a total of 5 pints of sugar.
4. Olivia could, at the least, make a container of ice cream.
5. The person that has 3 cups of sugar, has 17 cups less sugar than cups of milk.
6. If Austin has 7 times more milk, she would have 7 gallons of milk.
7. Austin could make at least 2 containers of ice cream.
8. If Olivia had 11 cups more sugar, she would have a total of 9 pints of sugar.
