[OLD]River Crossing


Recommended Posts

This one is easier than jmukiki's river one though.. style_emoticons/default/smile.gif


A man has to get a fox, a chicken, and a sack of corn across a river. He has a rowboat, and it can only carry him and one other thing. If the fox and the chicken are left together, the fox will eat the chicken. If the chicken and the corn is left together, the chicken will eat the corn. How does the man do it?

This was easy:

The man crosses first with the chicken.  Leaves the chicken and returns to the starting point.  He picks up the corn and crosses to the second side.  He drops off the corn and picks up the chicken.  He crosses with the chicken, leaves the chicken a picks up the fox.  He then drops the fox on the second side and returns for the chicken.  Now he crosses with the chicken, and goes on his merry way, with everything in tact.
