1. Pick up the goat and drop off onto the other side.
2. Return and pick up the wolf.
3. Drop the wolf off and take the goat back to the other side.
4. Pick up the cabbage after the goat is dropped off.
5. Drop cabbage off with the wolf.
6. Return to pick up the goat.

The goat is the problem, therefore it needs to be separate from the rest at all times.

Dude G-C-W
1. G CW
2, 3 W ---- G ---- C
4. W ------ C ---- G
5. W-C G
6. W-C-G ------- G -----

G = goat
C = cabbage
W = wolf

Ok. my cousin said " maybe the farmer just has to get on the wolf(like riding on it) hold the goat and tie the cabbage around the goats neck... that way they'll all get across at the same time!! duhh!!

First cross the river with the she-goat. the wolf shall not eat the cabbage. Then go back and get the wolf. Ferry the wolf across and then return the goat to the boat to get the cabbage. Once there swap the goat for the cabbage and take the cabbage over. That way the cabbage and the wolf won't harm each other. then go back one last time for the goat. Hope this helps =)

My favourite. :lol: and im sick of tired here people use logic. i mean logic by like "why not take the cabbage with teh goat. so much easier LOL!" fine, if you put it that way, just substitute it with three friends, for example, and they all weigh the same, can only take one at a time, and friend A and B will bicker, while friend B and C will bicker if you leave them alone. same thing. its not about common sense or so called logic, but problem solving. i have many ways of arguing that this riddle is not possible. bringing a goat with a wolf in the first place is impossible, the wolf could've also killed you before, the cabbage might be rotten and the goat you have hates rotten cabbage... etc.

its bullsh*t. dont think of it that way. please. it ruins the fun.

anyhow :P
