Fill the 3 gal jug up and pour 3 gal into 5 gal jug. Fill the 3 gal jug back up and pour into the 5 gal jug filling it up, leaving 1 gal in the 3 gal jug. Pour out entire 5 gal jug emptying it and pour the 1 gal from the 3 gal jug in the 5 gal jug. Fill the 3 gal jug back up and pour all 3 gal in the 5 gal jug giving you 4 gal.

Fill the 5 gal container up and fill the 3 gal container up using the water in 5 gal container. So far there are 2 gal water left in 5 gal container. Then pour all the water in 3 gal container and fill it again with the 2 gal water in 5 gal container. Finally fill up the 5 gal container again and use the water in 5 gal container to fill the 3 gal container. Then there are 4 gal water left in the 5 gal container.
