Three Water Bottles

You have three water bottles with capacities of 8 quarts, 5 quarts, and 3 quarts. The largest bottle is filled with water, and the other two are empty. If there are no graduation marks on any of the bottles, how can you split the water evenly so that two of the bottles contain exactly 4 quarts each? You can only use these three bottles. Click below for the answer.

I'd pour the contents of the 8 quart bottle into your 5 quart bottle until it (8 quart bottle) was half empty. Then I'd drink my half, cheers! :)
