Riddle:

A hunter met two shepherds, one of whom had three loaves and the other, five loaves. All the loaves were the same size. The three men agreed to share the eight loaves equally between them. After they had eaten, the hunter gave the shepherds eight bronze coins as payment for his meal. How should the two shepherds fairly divide this money?

Answer:

The shepherd who had three loaves should get one coin and the shepherd who had five loaves should get seven coins. If there were eight loaves and three men, each man ate two and two-thirds loaves. So the first shepherd gave the hunter one-third of a loaf and the second shepherd gave the hunter two and one-third loaves. The shepherd who gave one-third of a loaf should get one coin and the one who gave seven-thirds of a loaf should get seven coins.

Riddle:

While playing with a metal washer shaped like a ring, Dave accidently pushed it on his finger too far and couldn't get it off. Trying to remove it using soap and water didn't work. The hospital sent him to a service station thinking they could cut the metal. Since the ring was made with a specially hardened steel, it couldn't be cut. Just then Bob arrived on the scene and suggested an easy way to remove the washer in just a few minutes. What was his solution?

Answer:

Bob suggested that Dave hold his finger in the air while someone wound a piece of string tightly around his finger just above the metal ring. The string forced the swelling down. As they unwounded the string from the end nearest the ring, someone else slid the ring up. They continued winding and unwinding the string until the ring could be easily removed.

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
