Riddle:

A wealthy wise old woman feared that her daughter was lazy and as a result rather stupid. When the old woman died, her will stipulated that her assets were to be liquidated and a check was to be written for the full amount. The check was to be placed in one of three envelopes. The other two envelopes would contain a blank piece of paper. If the daughter could determine from the writing on the envelope which envelope contained the check, she would inherit her mother's fortune. Otherwise, the fortune would go to the old woman's favorite charity for animals. The daughter was not allowed to touch the envelopes. Her decision had to be made based on the writing on the envelopes. The daughter was told that only one envelope had a true statement and that the other two statements were false. The envelopes had the following writing: 1. This envelope does not have the check 2. This envelope has the check 3. The second envelope does not have the check Which envelope should the daughter pick?

Answer:

The daughter should pick envelope 1. Unfortunately she picked envelope 3. Statements 1 and 2 were false, and the only true statement was statement 3. If the check was in envelope 1, that would make statement 1 false, statement 2 false and statement 3 is the only true statement. If the check was in envelope 2, statements 1 and 2 would both be true. If the check was in envelope 3, statements 1 and 3 would both be true.

Riddle:

Their are three gaurds and three prisoners who need to cross a river. Their boat only holds two people at a time, and the number of prisoners must NEVER be allowed to outnumber the number of gaurds on either side of the river; otherwise, the prisoners will overpower the gaurds and, well, the story will come to an abrupt end.

Determine how many trips it will take to safely transport all of the gaurds and prisoners across the river, list each of the trips that need to be made and who is in the boat and who is on each of the riverbanks during each trip.

Answer:

Inless some one can tell me a way that 2 prisoners, at some point, don't out number the guards whether they are just dropping off and still in the boat or actually on land (because even if they are just dropping off and remain in the boat they are still on the other side of the river) I conclude this to be impossible. Please let me know an alternative if you figure one out because i'm stumped.

thanks
