what is the meaning of this sentence?

x contains mixture of wine and water in A:B and y contains of wine and water C : D. How many liters of the former must be mixed with Z liters of the latter so that resultant mixture contains equal quantities of wine and water?

My doubt is: what is the meaning of this sentence: "How many liters of the former must be mixed with Z liters of the latter"?

The former is 'x', the latter is 'y'.
