She-goat, Wolf and Cabbage

134 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

did you ever think that if you took the lamb/sheep or what-ever it was over, then if you took the cabbage over, that while you went back for the she-wolf your lamb/sheep would have eaten the cabbage, so what would be the point?

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?

First you take the she goat and drop her off on the other side of the river. leaving cabbage and wolf-

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!

Bold is on the left bank underline is on the right. It's easy. YOu take the she-goat across.

Then you go back and get the cabbage. YOu set the cabbage on the bank and bring the goat back to the other side. Then you drop off the goat and get the wolf and take him to the other side. After this you go back and get the goat. :D:lol::P;)

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)?

She-goat, Wolf and Cabbage - solution

Take the she-goat to the other side. Go back, take cabbage, unload it on the other side where you load the she-goat, go back and unload it. Take the wolf to the other side where you unload it. Go back for the she-goat. That's it.

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

The answer is simple; Man takes she-goat first, then goes back to get wolf, man drops off wolf and picks up she-goat then goes back to drop off she-got and get cabbage, man takes cabbage over and goes back for she-goat.

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

From my point of view, it looks like there are a lot of possibilities that makes sure that everything gets across safely:

1st Situtation:

Farmer -> Cabbage and Wolf to other side.

Farmer -> Returns to side where goat is.

Farmer -> Takes goat to other side.

We can also now tweak this a little bit so it will be:

2nd Situation:

Farmer -> Takes Cabbage to other side.

Farmer -> Returns and brings and wolf to other side.

Farmer -> Returns once more and brings the goat to the other side.

3rd Situation:

Farmer -> Takes goat and cabbage to the other side.

Farmer -> Brings back cabbage and takes the wolf and the goat to the other side.

In this way, there are many combinations that can work, but only a few make sense, unlike this one:

Weird Situation:

Farmer -> Takes cabbage to the other side.

Farmer -> Brings it back.

Farmer -> Takes cabbage to the other side.

Farmer -> Brings it back.

Farmer -> Takes cabbage to the other side.

Farmer -> Brings it back.

Farmer -> Takes cabbage to the other side.

Farmer -> Brings it back.

Farmer -> Takes cabbage and wolf to the other side, and returns.

Farmer -> Takes she goat to the other side. ;)

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

First off, only one object at a time.

so the first one is eliminated.

Second one, the wolf will eat the damn goat.

Busted.

Third one, again, only one object at a time, thats what makes this SO TRICKY AT FIRST.

4th.

I think by the time you come get the wolf, it's probably spitting out the last of the goats bones :P

SO BULLSH*T.

:lol: i feel very happy now :D sorry

First the farmer will take the she-goat to the other side :) . Then he'll take the wolf, leave him on the other side and return with the she-goat to where the cabbage still lies ;) . Leaving the she-goat there, he takes the cabbage to the other side and leaves it with the wolf :D . Then he comes back and finally takes the she-goat back again onto the other side :P . In this manner, he finally has crossed with his cabbage, she-goat and wolf to the other side of the river without having lost any of his possessions B)) .
