After covering 10 checkpoints coconuts remaining in each bag is 20.So he transfers 10 coconuts each from (say 3rd bag) to the first two bags.Now the two bags have 30 each.after covering 15 checkpoints more 15 coconuts remain in each bag.So he transfers 15 from (say 2nd bag) to the first one.So after going through 5 more checkpoints remaining coconuts are 25
