The River Crossing Problem

Main Concept

A farmer needs to cross the river, taking his wolf, his chicken, and his seeds. Unfortunately, if he is not with the wolf and chicken, the wolf will eat the chicken. Similarly, the chicken will eat the seeds. Given that he can only take up to one of his items, himself, and his boat at a time, how can he take everything across?


Use the buttons to help the farmer take his items from the island to the mainland.
