If you fill a 5 gallon jug then pour all you can into the 3 gallon jug you are left with 2 gallons of water in the 5 gallon jug. You then empty the 3 gallon jug and pour the 2 gallons of water in the 5 gallong jug into the 3 gallon jug Now you have 2 gallons of water in the 3 gallon jug and no water in the 5 gallon jug Fill the 5 gallon jug up with water Now you have a full 5 gallon jug and a 3 gallon jug with 2 gallons of water top off the 3 gallon jug with water from the 5 gallon jug Now you have 4 gallons of water in the 5 gallon jug and a full 3 gallon jug empty the 3 gallon jug Now you have an empty 3 gallon jug and 4 gallons of water in a 5 gallon jug. Fill the 3 gallon jug using the water in the 5 gallon jug. You now have a 3 gallon jug full of water and 1 gallon of water in a 5 gallon jug
