    You are next to a river and have a 5 gallon container and a 3 gallon container. You need to measure out 4 gallons of water (Don't ask why, you just need to! LOL) How do you measure out 4 gallons of water?

    Take the 5 gallon jug, fill it, dump it in the 3 gallon jug. dump it out of the 3 gallon jug, replace the water in the 3 gallon jug with the remaining water from the 5 gallon jug (2 Gallons). Then refill the 5 gallon jug, and top off the 3 Gallon jug and you have 4 gallons left in the 5 gallon jug
