Peter ordered a fishing rod online from Ted.

Unfortunately, Peter lives in a very remote part and the import rules there forbid any package longer than 4 feet to be imported.

The fishing rod was exactly 4 feet and 1 inch, just a little too long.

How will Ted ship the fishing rod to Peter without breaking the rules?
The fishing rod is one piece and Peter wants the fishing rod to arrive in one piece!

There are four people in an adventure race that need to get across a lake. They have a small canoe. The rules say that only the slowest person in the canoe can paddle, only one or two can be in the canoe at a time, and they must all cross in the canoe. From practice, they know that: Arnav can paddle across in 1 minute. Bilal can paddle across in 2 minutes. Suresh can paddle across in 5 minutes. Mohan can paddle across in 10 minutes.
How do they get everyone across the river in the fastest time without breaking the rules?
