Problem #61: Photographers and Cannibals
Three National Geographic photographers and three cannibals are
traveling together through a jungle when they come to a river. The largest
boat available can carry only two people at a time. The photographers are
safe only if on each side of the river there are equal numbers of photographers
and cannibals or there are more photographers than cannibals; otherwise, the
photographers become dinner. How can they all get across?
(Tokens such as pennies and nickels may be helpful in solving this problem.)
