River Puzzle

Postby Mike-S » Fri Nov 25, 2016 11:43 pm

Quick Xmas gift.
This is the old river crossing puzzle.
A farmer has to get a wolf, a sheep, and a cabbage across a river in his small boat that will only carry him and one passenger. If he takes the wolf and leaves the sheep and the cabbage alone, the cabbage gets eaten. If he leaves the wolf and the sheep alone, the sheep gets eaten. How does he get all three to the other side of the river?
File is for 3/4 material--adjust as needed.

I'd just eat the cabbage, or throw it across the river if possible Then bring the sheep with me on the first trip. If the wolf must come bring it on the second. Hope the sheep has had enough time to run away so the wolf won't find it.

Nice project BTW.

You sure that's not a cow Mike ??

Looks more like a cow than a sheep to me :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

As for the Farmers problem I have it on good authority that sheep don't like cabbage (gives them wind) so lucky he didn't buy a bag of beans :lol: :lol:

Oh good job on the puzzle :lol: :lol:

So do the sheep not like cabbage because they really don't like it, or is because they just want to be more sociable (no gas)?
Anyway , thanks. :D

Substitute caribou for sheep and that's my thoughts on our 25-cent piece---a cow with antlers...
