Yeah, that's one solution. Can someone come up with another one?
lol, challenge accepted! We have a similar puzzle here in The Sunday Telegraph here in the UK (I don't read the telegraph, it's just that my Maths teacher used to bring the puzzles in for us) so I've had my share of practise with those





That one is a walk in the park compared to what you set us!


Is there more than one solution!? I worked through it all logically and don't remember having a choice of two at any point.

Here is one for you. I hope it is not too simple.

A farmer is taking his goods to market. The market is located on the opposite bank of a nearby river. There is no ferry or other mode of transportation provided to cross the river. He has to supply his own. He loads up his wagon with a small boat and his goods (foxes, chickens, and corn).

When he reaches the river, he discovers he has problems. His boat is only large enough to hold him and one of his goods at a time. If he leaves the foxes and chickens unattended, the foxes will eat the chickens. If he leaves the chickens alone with the corn, the chickens will eat the corn. (The foxes and chickens will not stray away if left unattended.)

How does he get his goods to market without losing any of them?

Quite a simple puzzle. He simply ferries the items across as follows:

1. He ferries the Chickens across.
2. Returns empty-handed.
3. Ferries either Foxes or Corn across.
4. Returns with Chickens.
5. Ferries across with either Foxes or Corn, depending on what is left from Step 3.
6. Returns empty-handed.
7. Ferries the Chickens across.

They are all now safely on the other bank.

Why not Ferry the Foxes and corn across
come back empty
gather the chicken and ferry them across.

Fewer trips

Maybe this is a little more challenging.
