ab: Summary: You have a 3L jug and a 5L jug. Each is empty but you have tap of
running water that you can use to fill each jug. Can you fill the big
jug with 4L water by filling, emptying and pouring water from one jug
to the other? This article shows how you can solve these type of
problems in general.
