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

Fill up 3gl bottle. Pour in 5 gal bottle which now has 3gl in it. . Fill up 3 gl again, finish off 5 gl bottle leaveing 1gl left in 3 gl bottle. Empty out 5 gl bottle and por the 1gl left in 3 gl bottole into empty 5gl bottle. Then fill up 3gl bottle and pour all in 5 gl bottle and now you got 4gl water in 5 gl bottle.
