The Water Jug Puzzle (Thursday, July 10, 2008)While reviewing for my PhD qualifying exams, I came across the following puzzle:
Obviously, measuring out 4 liters is as easy as filling the 4liter jug, and measuring out 7 liters is as easy as filling the 7liter jug. But see if you can figure out how to end up with the other amounts in one of the two jugs. Remember, there is no "half a jug" nor any other place to store water. Leave a comment with your solution! CommentsThanks Matt, but it doesn't count if we've already been over the answers!!  editor  anonyMouZ (7/12/2008 11:22 AM)
