1. fill 3 gallon

2. pour that into 5 gallon

3. fill 3 gallon

4. from 3 gallon pour enough (2 gallon) to fill 5 gallon then empty 5 gallon

5. there will then be 1 gallon (3 - 2 = 1) in 3 gallon which is poured into 5 gallon

6. fill 3 gallon and pour it into 5 gallon,

making result of 1 + 3 = 4 gallon in 5 gallon jug.

# Fill the 4-gallon jug with water then put it in the 9-gallon jug. # Repeat this step. The 9-gallon jug now has 8 gallons. # Fill the 4-gallon jug a third time, but pour only enough into the 9-gallon jug to fill it completely with no overflow. # The 4-gallon jug now has three gallons. Put that water aside safely, then repeat 1-3 for a total of six 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.

3 gallons of what? water weighs 10lbs a gallon so weigh it,

A gallon is a measure of volume of fluid and it does not matter what the fluid is. So a gallon of propane is the same volume as a gallon of water.

The US measures liquid gallons at a rate of 1 US gallon to about 0.832 UK gallons. This measure applies to all fluids in both countries.

Fill the 5 gallon jug completely then pour that into the 3 gallon jug. Empty out the 3 gallon jug and pour the remaining water in the 5 gallon jug into the 3 gallon jug. Then just fill up the 5 gal jug again you will have 2 gallons in the 3 gallon jug and 5 gallons in the 5 gallon jug.

# 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!)

Easy. Fill the 7gal pail to the full mark (7 Gallons) with water. Then pour, from the 7 gallon pail, water into each of the 3 gallon pail up to the full mark. The remaining water left in the 7 gallon is 1 gallon. Pour this gallon into the aquarium. Fill the 7 gallon pail with water, again to the full mark, and then add to the aquarium. 1 Gallon + 7 Gallons = 8 Gallons.

If you fill a 5 gallon jug then pour all you can into the 3 gallon jug you are left with 2 gallons of water in the 5 gallon jug. You then empty the 3 gallon jug and pour the 2 gallons of water in the 5 gallong jug into the 3 gallon jug Now you have 2 gallons of water in the 3 gallon jug and no water in the 5 gallon jug Fill the 5 gallon jug up with water Now you have a full 5 gallon jug and a 3 gallon jug with 2 gallons of water top off the 3 gallon jug with water from the 5 gallon jug Now you have 4 gallons of water in the 5 gallon jug and a full 3 gallon jug empty the 3 gallon jug Now you have an empty 3 gallon jug and 4 gallons of water in a 5 gallon jug. Fill the 3 gallon jug using the water in the 5 gallon jug. You now have a 3 gallon jug full of water and 1 gallon of water in a 5 gallon jug

The original Ancient Egyptian Gallon had 216 cubic inches per gallon. Using that measure there are 13.89 gallons in 3000 cubic inches. The measure of a "gallon" has varied since then and differs by country and industry.

There are lots of ways to do this, but here's one: Fill the 5 gallon jug to the top. Pour the water from the 5 gallon jug to the 3 gallon jug until the 3 gallon jug is full. What's left in the 5 gallon jug is 5 - 3 = 2 gallons. Dump what's in the 3 gallon jug. Put the 2 gallons from the larger jug into the smaller jug. Now fill the 5 gallon jug. You'll have 5 + 2 = 7 gallons, as needed.

Depends on the liquid. Gallons measure volume, kilograms measure weight. A gallon of water does not weigh the same as a gallon of gasoline. Different liquids have different densities.

Gallons (a measure of liquid) and pounds (a measure of solids) are not directly related, since liquids can have different densities. A gallon of water, for example, weighs less than a gallon of motor oil. So I'd have to ask, "40 gallons of WHAT?"

Depends on the density of the fluid (I assume). Gallon is a measure of volume and pounds is a measure of mass. A gallon of water will weigh far less than a gallon of say mercury.

He will need to use the 3 gallon bottle twice to get 6 gallons and he needs to use the 2 quart bottle twice to get another 1 gallon. That way he will get 7 gallons.

the answer is a mega gallon of water

A gallon is a measure of volume and that requires more than one dimension.

The question makes no sense. Presumably it refers to diesel rather than deseil! A square foot is a measure of area in 2-dimensional space whereas both diesel and water are measured in 3-dimesional space. A typical measure was a gallon - now antiquated. However, a gallon of water is exactly the same as a gallon of diesel or a gallon of any other fluid, for that matter!

A 20 Gallon tank can hold up to 20 gallons of water.

2.125 gallons.

Gallons are a measure of volume. Kilograms are a unit of mass. One gallon of water weighs about 3.8 kg.

A gallon is a measure of volume whereas a pound is a measure of mass. The two measure different things and there is no universal conversion factor from one to the other. For example, the mass of one gallon of water will be quite different from that of one gallon of air. Consequntly, there is no conversion from gallons per minute to pounds per hour.
