Can You Solve This?
You have a barrel of root beer and you need to measure out just 1 gallon. How do you do this if you only have a 3 gallon container and a 5 gallon container?
Fill the 3 gallon container with root beer and pour it into the 5 gallon container. Then fill the 3 gallon container again and keep pouring it into the 5 gallon container until it is full to the brim. One gallon will be left in the 3-gallon container.
