# Thread: Who Has The Highest IQ? (continued)

1. ## Who Has The Highest IQ? (continued)

Two pool players from Texas are playing pool. They have just enough money after paying for their table time to buy one 12 oz can of beer. They buy the beer and ask the bartender for two glasses. The bartender doesn't have 6 oz glasses, but because he originally came from NY and was a smart bartender, he gives them a 5 oz glass and a 7 oz glass. The Texans think about it for a minute and realize that by just using the glasses and the can they can measure out the beer exactly in half. How did they do it?

One guy pours beer at the 7 oz glass. Then pours it to the 5 oz glass. He drinks the remaining 2 oz. Does this 3 times. Wallah, 6 oz.
The other guy drinks the other remaining 6 oz.
I doubt if they were from Texas. [img]/ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

why not just let the winner of the match drink the 7 oz and the loser the 5 oz?

OK ask for two 7 oz glass, pour beer to the 7 oz glass. Dump the 5 oz to the 5 oz glass. Pour the 2 oz to a separate 7 oz glass glass. Pour the 5 oz back to the 7 oz glass. Pour two more from the can. Dump the 5 oz to the 5 oz glass. Dump the 2 oz to the separarate glass (already has 4 oz). Pour back the 5 oz to the 7 oz glass. Pour two more oz from the can. Transfer it to the 5 oz glass, dump the remaining 2 oz to the separate 7 oz glass. Waalah, 6 oz.

[img]/ccboard/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] You have to work with only the two glasses and the can, you can't use anything else.

I'm sure there's a quicker way, but I come up with 10 pours back and forth until there's 1 oz left in the can, 6 oz. in the 7 oz glass, and 5 oz. in the 5oz. glass.

Guy #1 drinks from the can and the 5oz. glass.
