A farmer returns from the market, where he bought a she-goat, a cabbage and a wolf (what a crazy market :-). On the way home he must cross a river. His

boat is small and won't fit more than one of his purchases. He cannot leave the she-goat alone with the cabbage (because the she-goat would eat it), nor he can leave the she-goat alone with the wolf (because the she-goat would be eaten).
How can the farmer get everything on the other side in this river crossing puzzle?


Take the she-goat to the other side. Go back, take cabbage, unload it on the other side , go back and unload it. Take the wolf to the other side where you unload it. Go back for the she-goat.

OK for the first he takes she-got (so the remaining purchases- wolf as a carnivorous wont eat cabbage) and unload it on other side of the river. Next is the turn of the cabbage and unload it on other side of the river. again return and take the wolf across the river and unload it.
