What would you like to do?
If you have a bucket of water that holds 5 gallons of water and another bucket that holds 3 gallons of waterThe buckets have no markings How can you go to the well and bring back exactly 4 gallons?
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 pour 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.

Thanks for the feedback!
Depends what is in it
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.
It depends on the bucket size, but usually a standard size bucket would hold a few litters of water.
one tenth of a gallon
foolish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 at its brim we'll come to knw when d bucket is full stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Yes you are). Actually the correct answer is one… inch below the brim. This was calculated by weight over several five gallon buckets.
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?
Volume is the measure of space. A 5 gallon bucket is roughly 1152 cubic inches.
24 pints 1 gallon = 8 pints 1 pint = 0.12 gallon
If its a 100lb pool supply bucket 12.2 gal...look on the bottom.
A two gallon bucket of water weighs 16pounds because a pint of water weighs one pound and there are eight pints in a gallon there for two gallons of water weigh 16 pounds
A million pounds ^_^
