She-goat, Wolf and Cabbage
Posted 03 May 2008 - 09:47 PM
although in the same way, if you took the sheep/lamb or the she-wolf over first, then took the other one over, when you went back for the cabbage the wolf fould have eaten the sheep/lamb?
And anyway, who would go out, buy a lamb (okay, a lamb to eat?) a cabbage (yes, we all need our veg) and a she-wolf (what the?) all at once? in one day at the same time? was there a sale on or something?
*buy one lamb, and get a she-wolf free, only availble with cabbage*
or were you planning a she-wolf-cabbage and lamb-ish stew? ewwwwwwwwwwwwww.....!!!!!!
Does anyone agree with me?

Second you get the cabbage, drop it off- pick up the she goat again and head back a cross the river-leaving only the cabbage.
Third drop off the she goat, pick up the wolf and bring it across the river and drop it off. Leaving wolf and cabbage on the other side again-
Last you head back across the river and pick up the she goat and bring it back across. Walla! and there you have it -all are across the river in one piece!

She-goat, Wolf and Cabbage - Back to the River Crossing Puzzles
A farmer is returning from market, where he bought a she-goat, a wolf and cabbage. On the way home he must cross a river. His boat is little, allowing him to take only one of the three things. He can't keep the she-goat and the cabbage together (because the she-goat would eat it), nor the she-goat with the wolf (because the she-goat would be eaten).
How shall the farmer get everything on the other side (without any harm)?Spoiler for Solution
Take the goat over. Go get the cabbage, bring the goat back, take wolf over, then go get the goat again. Simple.

How about you take them in this order...
1. Wolf (He will be bored and lonely by himself while you make another trip)
2. Cabbage (Wolf wont eat the cabbage, apparently he likes she-goats)
3. She-Goat (Last trip, you will be there so nobody eats anything!)
No, while u r taking the wolf over the she-goat eats the cabbage
