    Go to the store and pick up three bottles at a time...see how many time you need to go until you get 13

    Can you take a car to the store and go inside and out several times before coming back home?

    I already know the answer, I didnt mean to post it I wanted to anser it haha. its 5, if you even if you take 2 bottles twice to get 4 then then take the max 3 will still end up at 5.
