Best Answer

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.

Fill up the 3 gallon bucket twice and empty the water into the 5 gallon bucket. This will leave you with 1 gallon in the 3 gallon bucket. Empty the 5 gallon bucket and pour the 1 gallon of water from the 3 gallon bucket into it. Fill the 3 gallon bucket and empty the water into the 5 gallon bucket. This will give you exactly 4 gallons.

First, fill up the 5 gallon bucket. Then, pour the contents in the 5 gallon bucket into the 3 gallon bucket. This leaves 2 gallons left in the 5 gallon bucket. Pour the 2 gallons into the 3rd container. Now, fill the 5 gallon bucket again and pour the full 5 gallons into the 3rd container. This gives you 7 gallons.

a bucket could be any measure. some common buckets are 1 gallon, 2.5 gallons (10 qts.), 3 gallons, 4 gallons, 5 gallons and 6 gallons. The most popular of these are 2.5 gallon galvanized steel, and 5 gallon plastic buckets. Cup measurements are too small for buckets, a 2.5 gallon bucket would be a 40 cup bucket, for example.

# 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!)
