Fill the 5 litre container and empty it into the 9 litre one. Fill the 5 litre (again) and empty 4 litres into the 9 litre container. Now - empty the remaining litre into the 6 litre container. Finally re-fill the 5 litre container and empty into the 6 litre one - and you're done.

Here's how to proceed:Fill container B with 3 liters.Pour the 3 liters from container B into container A.Fill container B again with 3 liters.Carefully pour from container B into container A, until container A is full.Container A already had 3 liters, so it only takes 2 more liters to fill it to 5 liters, leaving 1 liter remaining in container B.


Three containers have capacities of three five and nine liters How can these containers be used to measure exactly seven liters of water?

Several ways to achieve this - here is one solution. Fill the 5 litre container and pour it all into the 9 litre container. Fill the 5 litre container and pour it into the 9 litre container until the latter is full - leaving 1 litre in the 5 litre container. Empty the 9 litre container. Fill the 3 litre container and empty into 9 litre container. Repeat. There are now 6 litres in the 9 litre container. Pour the 1 litre from the 5 litre container into the 9 litre container which now contains 7 litres.


How do you measure 4 liters of water if you have a 7-liter and a 5-liter bucket?

This method works with any such problem, as long as the two buckets' liter-capacities (or gallon capacities, etc.) have no common factors, or else the common factors are also factors of the amount you're trying to measure. Fill the 7-liter bucket, and empty 5 liters of it into the 5-liter bucket; then dump out the 5 liters. Two liters will remain in the 7-liter bucket; transfer them to the 5-liter bucket. Fill the 7-liter bucket again, and empty enough of the bucket into the 5-liter bucket to fill it. That should only be 3 liters transfered, leaving 4 liters left in the 7-liter bucket. QED.


We have three jars one of 12-liter one 7-liter and one 5-liter. The 12-liter jar is full of water and the 7-liter with the 5-liter jar are empty. How do you get 6 liters of water using the two jars?

1)Transfer 7 liters from the 12-liter jar into the 7-liter jar.We now have 5 liters in the 12-liter jar and 7 liters in the 7-liter jar. The 5-liter jar is empty, as of now.2)Transfer 5 liters from the 7-liter jar into the 5-liter jar.The 12-liter, 7-liter, 5-liter jars now contain 5, 2 and 5 liters respectively.3)Empty the contents of the 5-liter jar into the 12-liter jar.The 12, 7, 5- liter jars now contain 10, 2 and 0 liters respectively.4)From the 7-liter jar, take out 5 liters and pour 7 liters from the 12-liter jar into the 7-liter jar.We now have 3 liters in the 12-liter jar and 7 in the 7-liter one, while the 5-liter jar has only two liters in it.5)Fill up the remainder of the 5-liter jar using the 7-liter jar.That leaves us with 3 liters on the 12-liter jar and 4 liters in the 7-liter jar. The 5-liter jar is full.6)Pour the contents of the 5-liter jar into the 12-liter jar.There are 8 liters in the 12-liter jar and 4 liters in the 7-liter jar, while the 5-liter jar is empty.7)Pour the 4 liters that are in the 7-liter jar into the 5-liter jar.We now have 8 liters in the 12-liter jar and 4 liters in the 5-liter jar. The 7-liter jar is empty.8)Fill the 7-liter jar using the 12-liter jar.There is now only 1 liter in the 12-liter jar and 7 liters in the 7-liter jar and 4 liters in the 5-liter jar.9)Fill up the 5-liter jar using the 7-liter jar.There is now 1 liter in the 12-liter jar and 6 liters in the 7-liter jar and 5 in the 5-liter jar.NOTE: This might not be the only way, or the shortest way to do it.

Wif you have a 5 liters of water and 3 liters of water how do you get 7 liters of water exactly?

Empty the 3 liter container into a spare container or containers. Fill the 3 liter container from the 5 liter container - This leaves 2 liters in the 5 liter container.
