Assuming you don't use fractions of the containers: You could fill the 5 gallon container and then decant it into the 4 gallon container until full leaving 1 gallon left in the 5 gallon container.

How can you measure exactly 5 gallons only using 2 containers that are 3 gallons and 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.


How do you measure 1 gallon in a 4 gallon vat?

It is impossible to measure out exactly 1 gallon into a 4 gallon container, unless the container has appropriate markings for measurement. However, if you had a 2nd container available, it may be possible to derive a 1 gallon measurement. Assuming a 2nd container of size: 1 Gallon: Just use the 2nd container 2 Gallon: Impossible 3 Gallon: Fill the 4 gallon container completely, then pour it into the 3 gallon container until full. You should have exactly 1 gallon left in the 4 gallon container. 4 Gallon: Impossible 5 Gallon: Fill the 5 gallon container until it is full, then dump it's contents into the 4 gallon container, leaving exactly 1 gallon left in the 5 gallon container. 6 Gallon: Impossible 7 Gallon: Fill the 4 gallon container completely, then empty it's contents into the 7 gallon container. Repeat this process, and when the 7 gallon container is full, there should be exactly 1 gallon left in the 4 gallon container. 8 Gallon: Impossible 9 Gallon: Fill the 9 gallon container completely, then use it to fill the 4 gallon container. Once the 4 gallon container is full, empty it and repeat. After pouring from the 9 gallon container twice, you will end up with exactly 1 gallon left. 10 Gallon: Impossible This pattern repeats for all containers that satisfy the following equations: C*n+1 C*n-1 Where C is the size of the original container (4 in this case), and n is all whole numbers greater than 0. The only additional case would be a 2nd container size of 1.
