The Barrel of Beer

Sunday, April 30th, 2017

Liquor merchant Smith had six barrels with the following respective volumes: 150, 160, 180, 190, 200 and 310 liters. One of the barrels contained beer, the others wine.

Merchant Smith sold some of the wine to Mr. Jones and then twice as much to Mr. Abernathy, which left him with only the barrel of beer.

How many liters did the barrel of beer contain?
