## Water JugglingLogic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.
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. ## AnswerIt's not short but it's right - use a piece of paper and follow the steps using A, B, C and pools. Change the quantities in each as you complete each step - it is worth it to see it come out right.Lets label the jugs. Jug A - first 8-liter Jug B - second 8-liter Jug C - 3-liter. The four infinites are pool 1, pool 2, pool 3, and pool 4. 1. Jug A to Jug C 2. Jug C to pool 1 3. Jug A to Jug C 4. Jug A to pool 2 5. Jug C to Jug A 6. Jug B to Jug C 7. Jug C to Jug A 8. Jug B to Jug C 9. Jug C to Jug A At this point, we have: Jug A - 8 Jug B - 2 Jug C - 1 Pool 1 - 3 Pool 2 - 2 Pools 3&4 - empty 10. Jug C to pool 3 11. Jug B to Jug C 12. Jug A to Jug C 13. Jug C to Jug B 14. Jug A to Jug C 15. Jug C to Jug B 16. Jug A to Jug C 17. Jug A to pool 4 At this point, we have: Jug A - 0 Jug B - 6 Jug C - 3 Pool 1 - 3 Pool 2 - 2 Pool 3 - 1 Pool 4 - 1. 18. Jug C to Jug B 19. Jug C to pool 1 20. Jug B to Jug C 21. Jug C to pool 3 22. Jug B to Jug C 23. Jug C to pool 4 24. Jug B to pool 2 ... And we end up with the desired result: Jug A - 0 Jug B - 0 Jug C - 0 Pool 1 - 4 Pool 2 - 4 Pool 3 - 4 Pool 4 - 4 Tough, but workable. Hide ## What Next?
