A group of four people has to cross a bridge. It is dark, and they have to light the path with a flashlight. No more than two people can cross the bridge simultaneously, and the group has only one flashlight. It takes different time for the people in the group to cross the bridge:

Annie crosses the bridge in 1 minute, Bob crosses the bridge in 2 minutes,
Caren crosses the bridge in 5 minutes, Dorothy crosses the bridge in 10 minutes.
