Can I simply fill the 5 gallon jug, and then you could get rid of the excess gallon or simply not use it for whatever?

No, you can use both jugs, but you have to end up with exactly four gallons. No estimates allowed.

Are the jugs open at the top, or do they seal?

Can the 3 gallon jug fit into the 5 gallon jug?

They are open, and sealing doesn't matter. They could also just be buckets if you want.

No, but its an interesting thought. It shows that you are kinda headed in the right direction.

Fill the 5 gallon jug, then pour it into the 3 gallon jug, until the 3 gallon jug is full. Empty the 3 gallon jug and pour the remaining 2 gallons into the 3 gallon jug. Fill the 5 gallon jug again, and use it to fill the 3 gallon jug to the brim again. Empty the 3 gallon jug. You now have 4 gallons in the 5 gallon jug.

My initial thinking was to use the 3 gallon jug to displace 3 gallons from the 5 gallon jug, then pouring the remaining 2 into the 3 gallon jug, and repeating.

I had a slightly different method in mind, but yours works as well.

Good job!

I'd be interested to know the alternate method.

I'll put one up now, tell me if it or one like it has been posted before.

You've been sentenced to death in a country with a strange law. Before the death sentence you are allowed to pick, without looking, one of two papers from a hat, one has "life" written on it, and the other "death." If you choose "death," the sentence is carried out, and if you choose "life" you are set free. The villain of the story informs you that he's replaced the "life" paper with another one that reads "death." You cannot tell anyone, nor will you have any chance to switch the papers yourself. How will you get out?

Pick a paper...and...eat it.


you will not have to explain yourself, they will just think you are nuts...and when they check the other paper, which will say DEATH, they will assume you picked the LIFE paper

Yep. You got that pritty quick, your turn I guess.

Sorry about the craziness of the question, I typed it twice, with the intention to delete the first one, but I guess only some got deleted. weird.

Ok...Mary lives in a big house by the ocean. She has not left her house in years...

one night she decides to go out, and closes all the lights in her house.

That night, she is responsible for the deaths of 80 people...Why?

A boat has a rope ladder that just touches the water at low tide. It's rungs are 6 inches apart. When the tide rises 4 feet, how many rungs will be underwater?

There would be seven rungs under water and one rung just touching the water (assuming the boat is resting on the seabed and has a hole in it).
