## Jugs with Water

You have a 3 liter jug, a 5 liter jug, and an infinite amount of tap water. How can you measure exactly 4 liters of water using the jugs?

**SOLUTION**

Call the 3 liter jug “small” the 5 liter jug “large”.

- Fill the large jug with water.
- Pour 3 liters of water from the large jug into the small jug.
- Empty the small jug with water.
- Pour the remaining 2 liters of water from the large jug into the small jug.
- Fill the large jug with water.
- Pour water from the large jug into the small jug, until the small jug is full.

Now there are exactly 4 liters of water in the large jug.
