cut both ends of sack open the twist tie one end shut, pour peas in. twist bag after the peas then pour lentils twist tie bag at top. give inn keeper the peas by untying bottom of bag while holding twisted middle then just flip so you don't loose the lentils.

I would bind the top of part of my sack (holding the lentils), then flip the sack over and cut open the bottom. Then I'd pour the peas into the innkeeper's sack.

I totally agree. That is what i first think of doing. I mean, who wants to tie, flip, blah blah blah. just tie it and rip the dang thing open! yay laziness! :D

or the easier way would just to unbind the part of the sack the had the lentils and pour them into the innkeepers sack. then trade sacks, and your done. the first solution is too confusing and complicated i think. also the peas never leave the bag so its impossible for them to be devalued since they are still in original packaging.

Ok,man.Read carefully the riddle again.
YOU CANT TRADE SACKS!!!

Sack - Back to the Logic Puzzles
A poor farmer went to a market to sell some peas and lentils, however as he had only one sack and didn't want to mix peas and lentils, he poured in the peas at first, bound the sack up and than poured in the lentils. At the market a rich innkeeper wanted to buy the peas, but he did not want the lentils.
How would you solve this problem if you had only the sack of the innkeeper, which he wants to keep (without devaluing the goods).

Edit: Pouring the goods anywhere else than in sacks (eg. on the ground, table etc.) is considered as devaluing. Trading sacks is not allowed.


Spoiler for Solution


How do you unbind the sack if the binding is now covered with peas?
