The user enters the volume of the tank and the volumes of the two buckets, and the calculator produces the sequence of actions taken to fill the tank.

This type of problem is a classic example of mathematical problem-solving and is commonly taught in mathematics textbooks to teach basic mathematical concepts.

The calculator uses a brute force approach to find a solution, it simply checks all possible combinations. "Search depth" option limits the outputted solutions to certain number of actions (otherwise you can get too many results).
