# Measuring 4.6 liters with a 4.3L bucket and a 4.7L bucket

You are standing next to an unlimited source of water (the tap in your kitchen). You need precisely 4.6 litres of water. Luckily you found two empty buckets. One can hold 4.3 and the other 4.7 litres of water. How can you measure the correct amount of water using the buckets when neither of them has graduation marks?

• Are you emptying the water into a container or must there just be collectively 4.6 liters in the buckets? – MoldovanHipster Jul 17 '15 at 19:34
• I believe there will be collectively be 4.6 liters in the buckets. But the question did not specify. – bigC5012 Jul 17 '15 at 19:39
• You mean you didn't write this question yourself? If it's not your own, you should credit the source. – dennisdeems Jul 17 '15 at 19:42
