Here's what you have:

-Two 8-liter jugs, filled with water
-One 3-liter jug, empty
-Four infinite size, empty pools

Here's what your objective is:
Fill each of the four pools with exactly 4 liters of water.

Here are your constraints:

-You have nothing else at your disposal.
-There is no other water aside from the two 8-liter water filled jugs.
-Once water is poured into any of the 4 pools it cannot be removed from there.
-The jugs are not symmetric so you cannot measure amount by eye or judge based on shape.


Hint

I am not sure how to help you :). I solved this in 24 steps (you may have more or less). It helps to label the jugs and pools, and then draw. Oh, main key, try to work backwards, from filled pools, and see what final steps are even possible.
