## How do you solve a water pouring puzzle?

A) Fill the 5-gallon jug. Use it to fill the 3-gallon jug, leaving 2 gallons in the 5-gallon jug. Empty the 3-gallon jug, and then pour in the 2 remaining gallons from the other jug. Fill the now empty 5-gallon jug and pour 1 gallon into the 3-gallon jug.

### What is liquid pouring problem?

Water pouring puzzles (also called water jug problems, decanting problems, measuring puzzles, or Die Hard with a Vengeance puzzles) are a class of puzzle involving a finite collection of water jugs of known integer capacities (in terms of a liquid measure such as liters or gallons).

**How do you solve a 3 jug problem?**

The water jug puzzle – solution The 3 litre jug is emptied into the 8 litre jug, so the 8 litre jug now contains 6 litres of water. The 2 litres of water in the 5 litre jug are now poured into the empty 3 litre jug. Water is poured from the 8 litre jug (which at this stage contains 6 litres) into the empty 5 litre jug.

- Pour the 5 litre bucket into the 3 litre bucket until the 3 litre bucket is full.
- Empty the 3 litre bucket.

**Which technique could be used to find shortest solution to water jug?**

Breadth-first search is usually compared with the depth-first search (DFS) algorithm. For solving the Water Jug Puzzle, we prefer the Breadth-first search over the Depth-first search as it is not necessary that the depth-first search will find the shortest path.

**How would you measure exactly 6 liter of water when you have only two containers a 4 liter bucket and a 9 liter bucket write an optimal algorithm to solve the problem?**

Fill the 9-liter bucket again and then pour water to fill the 4-liter bucket to the top (this only needs 3 more liters). The 9-liter bucket will now contain exactly 6 liters.

## How do you get 3l of water from a free flow tap using two containers of 5l each?
