An Old Classic Problem

Home / Puzzles in Education / Hands On Puzzles / Grade 3 /

A farmer wants to get his goat, wolf and cabbage to other side of the river. His boat is only big enough to carry him and either his goat, his wolf or his cabbage. If he leaves the goat alone with the cabbage, the goat will eat the cabbage. If he leaves the wolf with the goat, the wolf will eat the goat. Only when the farmer is present are the goat and the cabbage safe from their predators. How does he manage to get everything to the other side?
