1 pound of quarters is $20. Based on the space used in the jug, the amount of quarters inside can vary, but it should be slightly above 200 lbs. This means that a 5 gallon jug filled only with quarters should hold over $4,000.

i just emptied one the other day and bought it to the bank...$3748 total

you fill the five gallon then dump three of that into the three gallon so you have 3 in the 3 and 2 in the 5 then you dump out the three and fill the 3 with the remaining two gallons and fill the 5 completely so you have a combined 7 gallons.

Notation: ( x , y ) where x is the amount of water in the 3-gallon container and y is the amount of water in the 5-gallon container1. Fill the three-gallon container ( 3 , 0 )2. Pour the three gallons into the 5-gallon container ( 0 , 3 )3. Fill the three-gallon container ( 3 , 3 )4. Fill the five-gallon container with the three-gallon container, leaving 1 gallon in the three gallon container ( 1 , 5 )5. Pour out the water from the five-gallon container ( 1 , 0 )6. Pour the water from the three-gallon container into the five-gallon container ( 0 , 1 )7. Fill the three-gallon container ( 3 , 1 )8. Pour the water from the three-gallon container into the five-gallon container ( 0 , 4 )Another great answer here:[See below for the related link]

you fill the 7 gallon jug and then place the water into the 5 gallon jug. You will end up with 2 gallons because you subtracted 5 gallons, place that water somewhere else and repeat the process.

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.
