    Three. Why?

    Unless you're saying that the four gallon bucket can also hold three gallons, in which case you have two. Note that you didn't say "can hold," you said, "hold."

      also: the word "and" indicates the two three-gallon buckets are in addition to the four-gallon bucket

    Are you including the bucket your mother uses for the coal?

    You have 3 buckets. What does this have to do with religion?

    You'd better consult your BuyBull for the answer.

    By the way, all of the BuyBull's buckets will leak and fall apart,

    because in the BuyBull, the mathematical value of PI = 3.0.

    Nothing in the BuyBull can hold water.

    Then you have enough water for a week.

    Would you like to buy a magic bucket?

    Since you posted this on the RELIGION forum, the ONLY proper answer MUST be

    "If it is not revealed in [ insert name of favorite Sacred Writing here], then it is not meant for mankind to know!"

    See how easy that was?

    Without more details, it's not possible to say.

    If you were to ask the question,

    "If I have one bucket that holds 4 gallons of water, and two OTHER buckets that hold 3 gallons each" the answer is three or more.

    But "If I have one bucket that holds 4 gallons of water, and two buckets that hold a maximum of 3 gallons each," the answer would be two or more.

      The word "and" indicates that that the two three-gallon buckets are in addition to the four-gallon bucket. The four-gallon bucket cannot SIMULTANEOUSLY hold four gallons AND three gallons.

    At least three.
