Two water jugs 2004-08-16 From A student:You go to a source of water with two jugs and only two jugs. One jug has a capacity of exactly three pints and the other five pints. Both jugs are opaque (you can`t see inside them) and irregularly shaped. You have no other water containers. You do not have a scale. How can you use the two jugs and only the two jugs to measure exactly four pints of water?Answered by Penny Nom.
