Glass of Water Puzzler
RAY: This Puzzler was sent in by Frank Juskolka. Frank writes, "You have a four-ounce glass and a nine-ounce glass. You have an endless supply of water. You can fill or dump either glass.
TOM: Do you have a plastic bag in your pocket? No. Okay. Just checking.
RAY: It turns out, you can measure six ounces of water using these two glasses. The question is:
1. How many steps are involved; and
B. What's the fewest number of steps in which you can measure six ounces?
