Joy of Mathematics
The Joy of Mathematics Group meets on the last Monday each month at 1.30 at a member's home.
In ‘Die Hard with a Vengeance’ Bruce Willis and Samuel L Jackson were called upon to measure out exactly 4 gallons of water at a fountain to defuse a bomb.
They were to use just a 3 gallon and a 5 gallon container.
How would you have solved the puzzle? E me your answers if you like.
Can you find ways of measuring out all amounts from 1 gallon to 8 gallons?
