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.
