I wonder if you could help me figure out this secondary Discrete Math Problem. I cannot figure out where this comes from.
Here's the question:
You have three containers. Container 1 is a three (3) liter container. Container 2 is a five (5) liter container. Container 3 is an eight (8) liter container that is full of liquid. The goal is to get 4 liters in one of the containers.
Stipulations: There are no marks on the containers to measure out the liquid.
All you know is that 1 is 3 l., 2 is 5 l., and 3 is 8 l. full of liquid.
