A man went on a trip with a fox, a goose and a sack of corn.
He came upon a stream which he had to cross and found a tiny boat to use to cross the stream.
He could only take himself and one other - the fox, the goose, or the corn - at a time.
He could not leave the fox alone with the goose or the goose alone with the corn.

How does he get all safely over the stream?

These are the conditions that have to be followed.

  1. Only humans and the big wolf can row the boat.
  2. At all times, the number of humans on either side of the river must be greater or equal to the number of wolves on that side. (Or else the humans will be eaten by the wolves!)
