One man has a barrel with good wine. a friend of him wants to get one liter. But the man has only one jar of 5 liters and one of 3 liters. How can he measure 1 liter of wine without spoiling any wine?

Get 3 liters, put it into jar with 5

Get another 3 liters and put it also in the jar of 5. But it has already 3 liters so it can only get 2 more.
When you finish, you have 1 liter in the jar oj 3 remaining.
