What bugs me most is this next riddle
I've only solved it while playing my fiddle
You'd think once I figured it out
A replay would be like pulling a stout
But each time I hear it again
I don't remember the answer, or where to begin
For me the answer is exclusive
For me the answer is reclusive
Everytime it comes up now
I scratch my head and say WOW
I figured this one out before
But since then it's been more than a chore

I know there are many bright minds here on this sight
And very soon quickly one will get it right

When I was 17, I came to a dithering cross
By a task that was given from the big boss
He said “Boy!”, (He was 82 years old and always called me that)
He said, “Boy come feed all of my cats.”

Man there were like 16 of them, and I was in awe at the task I saw
He said give them each a quart of milk; each and everyone of them all
I did quick times tables in my head..
Sounds like 16 quarts I need them to be fed.


Next, he said here are your tools
A three gallon jug and a five, I’m no fool
16 quarts with these weird rules
Somehow I had to measure it out
And dang it I was to young to drink stout.

If you figured out this much so far
How did I split 16 quarts equally among 20 ounce jars – (PS. Don’t ask me I never got that part right)

Maybe you will and then sleep quite right.


So enough rambling in my stupid way
Here is your riddle, lets hear what you say

I have to admit
I'm a little distraught
How 3 and 5 gallons equal 20 ounce jars I know not.
Maybe I missed a part of this riddle
Or maybe my mind is just to little
It could perhaps be the bottle of wine
That I just finished, making me feel real fine

one thing I must ask
to help me figure things out
is it 20 single ounce jars?
or did he go the 20oz jar route?

The 16/20 ounce part is not what this is about
To be quite honest its not a part, I'm a lout
The riddle my friend is about 5 and 3 making four
Thats the hard part. I shouldn't have asked more
If somebody figures out the 16/20 thing
It will be pure genius and a challenging time he will bring
I'm trying to make old riddles different
I screwed up this one... (no rhyming end)

Concentrate on this:

Goal 4 gallons

Vessels to measure that out. One 5G and one 3G. You can use them any way you want. Dumping out and not reusing is fine. In fact, necessary.

This one explained that way I can do
I'm trying to figure out how to in a rhyme or two

If the 5 gallon jug is empty and the 3 full
You could pour 3 into 5, leaving space for two thats the rule.
fill once again the 3 and top off the five
leaving 1 gallon in the 3 gallon jug alive.
Dump out the 5 and fill it with the remainder of the jug that holds 3
leaving just 3 gallons needed, you see.
Fill once again the 3 gallon vessel
add it to the 5, this idea you need not wrestle
Once this is done, the riddle is solved
leaving the 4 gallons needed, with too many steps involved.

I'm not going to even try rhyming this! Way too druck.

(Edit: I saw the above post only after I wrote the rest of this post, but noticed I actually solved it differently!)

Fill 5gal jug
Pour it into 3gal jug, leaving two gallons in 5gal jug
Dump 3gal jug, pour the two gallons into it.
Fill 5gal jug again, start pouring it into the 3gal jug (which already contains two gallons)
Once the 3gal jug is full, you're left with four gallons in the 5gal jug
And we don't use quarts here in Canada, but if I'm not mistaken, 4 gallons equal 16 quarts, so there's the milk you need.

When I first saw the 2nd part, I thought that's too simple, is that really the right question? And then I really thought about it, and it might be much harder than it seemed. And I'm not even sure I even really understand it or the rules. Can more milk be wasted than the 6 gallons in the first part? Are there unlimited 20oz jars?
