If you have a gallon, you only can have one gallon.

Only 1.

To drink, only three or four gallons.

# Start with empty buckets, and carry them to the well. # (Note that the larger is the 7-gallon bucket, and the smaller is the 4-gallon bucket.) # Fill the 4-gallon bucket with water to the top. # Empty all the water from the 4-gallon bucket into the 7-gallon bucket. # (Note that there is room in the 7-gallon bucket for exactly 3 more gallons.) # Fill the 4-gallon bucket again. # Pour from the 4-gallon bucket into the 7-gallon bucket all the water that will fit, spilling none. # (Note that since there was room for only 3 more gallons in the 7-gallon bucket, you now have 1 gallon left in the 4-gallon bucket.) # Dump out all the water from the 7-gallon bucket. (Pour it back into the well or onto some flowers so it's not wasted.) # Pour the 1 gallon of water that remains in the 4-gallon bucket into the empty 7-gallon bucket. # Refill the 4-gallon bucket completely. # Pour all the 4 gallons from the 4-gallon bucket into the 7-gallon bucket. # (Note that since the 7-gallon bucket had 1 gallon already and you added 4 gallons, you now have 5 gallons of water in the 7-gallon bucket!) # Bring back your 7-gallon bucket that's holding exactly 5 gallons of water. (Bring your 4-gallon bucket back too, in case you want to play again!)

you fill the 3 gallon bucket into the 5 gallon bucket twice 2 *3 6 gallons but the 5 gallon will only overflow once it hits 5 gallons. You get the 1 gallon half in the 3 gallon bucket and dump the water out of the 5 gallon bucket. You pour the 1 gallon left from the 3 gallon bucket into the 5 gallon bucket and then refill the 3 gallon bucket and put the 3 gallons in making 4 gallons.

1. Completely fill the 4 gallon container. 2. Pour 3 of the 4 gallons into the 3 gallon container, leaving 1 gallon in the 4 gallon container. 3. Empty the 3 gallon container and pour the 1 remaining gallon from the 4 gallon container into the 3 gallon container. 4. Fill the 4 gallon container. Now you have a total of 5 gallons, 4 in the 4 gallon container and 1 in the 3 gallon.

Only one, if you're willing to keep at it and finish the job.

One gallon is 3.79 liters, and one liter is is 0.26 gallons. If you only need to calculate it approximately then just remember there are just under four liters in a gallon.

They have a 25 gallon tank, but can only hold 23.75 gallons (gas tanks need 5% of their capacity for vapor expansion)

8 quarts is equal to 2 gallons only.1 gallon = 4 quarts3 gallons = 3 gallons * 4 quarts/1 gallon = 12 quarts8 quarts = 8 quarts * 1 gallon/4 quarts = 2 gallons

a gallon is only 3.78 liters therefore 5 l is only 0.75 gallons

You pour four gallons into the five gallon drum, and take the ten gallon drum with the other four gallons of oil in that.
