So i'll make up a maths equation out of it. x=3 y=5 4=4 4=2*2 4= 2(y - x) y= x + 2 y= (2x + 4)/2 4= 2(((2x + 4)/2) - x) 4= 2((2x + 4)/2) - 2x x= y - 2 4=2((2x + 4)/2) - 2(y - 2) 4=2x + 4 - (2y - 4) 4= 2x - 2y + 8 2= x - y + 4 -2= x - y -2= 3 - 5 -> true QED /utter nonsense you may: quote & reply,

Oh..wait..I know! spoiler:x=3 y=5 4=4 4=2*2 4= 2(y - x) y= x + 2 y= (2x + 4)/2 4= 2(((2x + 4)/2) - x) 4= 2((2x + 4)/2) - 2x x= y - 2 4=2((2x + 4)/2) - 2(y - 2) 4=2x + 4 - (2y - 4) 4= 2x - 2y + 8 2= x - y + 4 -2= x - y -2= 3 - 5 -> true Oh yeah! you may: quote & reply,

Put contents of 3gb in 5gb. Fill 3gb. Put contents of 3gb in 5gb. After 2 gallons it is full and there is 1 gallon left in the 3gb. Empty 5gb. Put contents of 3gb (1 gallon) in 5gb. Fill 3gb. Put contents of 3gb in 5gb. Voilą: 4 gallons in the 5 gallon bottle. you may: quote & reply,

My physics teacher gave us that as homework one night... he wasted a whole 10 seconds of my life that it took me to figure out (no, I haven't seen Die Hard either).
