Is This too Hard?

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?

  • He could leave the fox alone with the corn while the goose swims across.

  • The goose could fly over the stream and the fox can swim then the man can take the corn
