    You have a barrel of oil, and you need to measure out just one gallon. How do you do this if you only have a three-gallon container and a five-gallon container?

    Fill the 3-gallon container with oil and pour it into the 5-gallon container. Then fill the 3-gallon container again and use it to fill the 5-gallon container the rest of the way. One gallon will be left in the 3-gallon container.

    3 g container full poor into 5 gallon. do this again, then you will be left with 1 g in your 3 g container.

    How did Mark legally marry three women in Michigan, without divorcing any of them, becoming legally separated, or any of them dying?

    Hi Kemo

    Fill the three gallon and empty the oil into the five gallon

    Fill the three gallon again and pour the oil into the five gallon until it is full and stop

    you will have one gallon remaining in the three gallon container.
