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.

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.
