You are making a certain type of cake that requires half a cup of water. Unfortunately, you only have one that fills up to 1 cup, and another that fills up to 3 quarters of a cup. How can you measure half a cup?


Fill 1 cup of water, then pour it into the other cup so that a quarter of water remains in the larger cup. Then, empty the 3 quarter cup and pour the 1 quarter that is in the other cup into the 3 quarter cup. Fill 1 cup of water again, and pour the water into the 3 quarter cup until full, and you should have half a cup of water in the larger cup.
