The 7 gallons riddle!

Hope y’all are having a fun Spring Break. Here’s a little riddle to keep your brain on its toes. It was on my Maths Test.

You have a 9-gallon pail and a 5-gallon pail you need exactly 7 gallons of water in each pail. How do you get it?

Note: 1) You can’t guess the size of 7 gallons in the 9-gallon pail…you are not that intelligent really lol.

2) DO NOT google it! Let your brain do the work. I figured the answer by my self.

3) Some people would get this in 10 minutes, others would never get it. Its fun trying anyways ;)

I would comment with the answer on the last day of Spring Break. Goodluck!
