Question: You are trying to get your chicken, fox, and wheat to the barn. However, the barn is on the other side of the river. You are on a boat and can only transport one animal or wheat at a time. You must choose carefully not to leave the wrong two together, though. It's either the fox will eat the chicken or the chicken will eat the wheat. How do you take each thing across safely?
Answer: Take the chicken first, then come back and grab the fox. Once you have dropped the fox off, take the chicken back across, and grab the wheat. Then come back and get the chicken. That's how they'll get across safely.
