If Jim has 1 bucket with 2 gallons of water and another bucket with 5 gallons of water how many buckets does Jim have?
Answer Jim has a total of 2 buckets. In the 2 buckets, there is a total of 7 gallons of water.
5 gallons of liquid does indeed occupy a volume of 0.67 cubic feet (5 gallons divided by 7.48 gallons per cubic foot), but a "5-gallon" bucket actually holds a bit more than 5… gallons. Take your bucket and a 1-gallon jug, fill the bucket with water a gallon at a time, and mark the side of the bucket at each 1 gallon interval. You will discover that the 5 gallon mark ends up about 1.75 inches from the top of the bucket. Therefore a full bucket really holds somewhere in the neighborhood of 5.75 gallons (+/- a few ounces, depending on bucket manufacturer). This "extra" space in the bucket is there for practical reasons, as well as for safety--imagine the mess potential in opening a bucket of paint that is full to the very tip-top. So if you are filling your bucket to the top, you are really dealing with a volume of about 0.77 cubic feet.
you fill the 3 gallon bucket into the 5 gallon bucket twice 2 *3 6 gallons but the 5 gallon will only overflow once it hits 5 gallons. You get the 1 gallon half in the 3… gallon bucket and dump the water out of the 5 gallon bucket. You pour the 1 gallon left from the 3 gallon bucket into the 5 gallon bucket and then refill the 3 gallon bucket and put the 3 gallons in making 4 gallons.
If I have a bucket of water that holds 4 gallons of water and another bucket that holds 7 gallons of water. The buckets have no markings. How can I go to the well and bring back exactly 5 gallons?
Fill the 4 gal bucket and empty it into the 7 gal bucket.. Fill the 4 gal bucket and then fill the 7 gal bucket from the 4 gal.. This leaves 1 Gallon in the 4 gallon bucket.…. Empty the 7 gallon bucket and pour the gallon from the 4 gal lbucket into it.. Fill the 4 gal bucket and pour it into the 7 gal bucket.. You then have 5 gallons in the 7 gallon bucket.

Start with empty buckets, and carry them to the well. # (Note that the larger is the 7-gallon bucket, and the smaller is the 4-gallon bucket.) # Fill the 4-gallon bucket w…ith water to the top. # Empty all the water from the 4-gallon bucket into the 7-gallon bucket. # (Note that there is room in the 7-gallon bucket for exactly 3 more gallons.) # Fill the 4-gallon bucket again. # Pour from the 4-gallon bucket into the 7-gallon bucket all the water that will fit, spilling none. # (Note that since there was room for only 3 more gallons in the 7-gallon bucket, you now have 1 gallon left in the 4-gallon bucket.) # Dump out all the water from the 7-gallon bucket. (Pour it back into the well or onto some flowers so it's not wasted.) # Pour the 1 gallon of water that remains in the 4-gallon bucket into the empty 7-gallon bucket. # Refill the 4-gallon bucket completely. # Pour all the 4 gallons from the 4-gallon bucket into the 7-gallon bucket. # (Note that since the 7-gallon bucket had 1 gallon already and you added 4 gallons, you now have 5 gallons of water in the 7-gallon bucket!) # Bring back your 7-gallon bucket that's holding exactly 5 gallons of water. (Bring your 4-gallon bucket back too, in case you want to play again!)
You haven't told us how big the bucket is. But even if we knew that, we would have no way of knowing how much water is in it. Maybe it's empty and you're just pulling our …chain.
I'd say 12 inches. it's a guestimate but I'm sure I am pretty close.

Fill up the 3 gallon bucket twice and empty the water into the 5 gallon bucket. This will leave you with 1 gallon in the 3 gallon bucket. Empty the 5 gallon bucket and p…our the 1 gallon of water from the 3 gallon bucket into it. Fill the 3 gallon bucket and empty the water into the 5 gallon bucket. This will give you exactly 4 gallons.

1 Liter of water weighs 1 Kg. 5 gallons of water is 18.93 Liters, so 18.93 Kg for the water. I have no idea the mass of the bucket.
Need more info. What are you doing with the buckets?
First, fill up the 5 gallon bucket. Then, pour the contents in the 5 gallon bucket into the 3 gallon bucket. This leaves 2 gallons left in the 5 gallon bucket. Pour the 2 gall…ons into the 3rd container. Now, fill the 5 gallon bucket again and pour the full 5 gallons into the 3rd container. This gives you 7 gallons.
Volume is the measure of space. A 5 gallon bucket is roughly 1152 cubic inches.
Firstly fill up the 7 gallon bucket, then pour the contents into the empty 5 gallon bucket until it is full. This will leave 2 gallons in the 7 gallon bucket. Empty the 5 gall…on bucket, then pour the remaining 2 gallons of the 7 gallon bucket into the 5 gallon bucket. Fill up the 7 gallon bucket again. Top up the 5 gallon bucket, this will leave 4 gallons in the 7 gallon bucket. Empty the 5 gallon bucket again. Pour the 4 remaining gallons from the 7 gallon bucket into the 5 gallon bucket. Fill the 7 gallon bucket again then top up the 5 gallon bucket. This will leave 6 gallons in the 7 gallon bucket.
That's going to depend on its shape, and on how deep it is.
Fill the 1 gallon bucket and ignore the other.
