How do I calculate this?

I have a question for you guys:

I have 5 buckets:

Bucket A can only fit 100 apples
Bucket B can only fit 50 apples
Bucket C can only fit 75 apples
Bucket D can only fit 100 apples

During the day I want to fill each bucket as apples comes in.

At the end of the day each bucket should be filled equally base on the max allowed.

So if Bucket A got 75% filled then Bucket B, C, and D should also be filled at 75% or close to 75%

What is a good formula to use for that?

Also please note that Bucket B or D would not be available in the morning only in the afternoon.
