[SOLUTION] Priests and cannibals June 20, 2005 8:30 PM

I am starting a new thread for the solution, so that if I don't log in for sometime, people who need the solution immediately can just get it, but people who want to figure it out don't get their fun spoiled. Here's how they get across. First, two cannibals cross from source bank to destiny bank, and a cannibal comes back (Or a priest and a cannibal cross, and the priest comes back). Then two cannibals cross, and one cannibal comes back. Now two priests cross, and a priest, and a cannibal return. Once again, two priests cross, and the cannibal comes back. And you can figure out the rest from there.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

  • first is to bring the two cannibals in the 2nd island, the one of the cannibals return to the 1st island..(2nd island 1 cannibal-1st island 2 cannibals and 3 priest)

  •  next are two cannibals again go to the 2nd island and then the cannibal  return to the 1st island...(2nd island 2 cannibals-1cannibal and 3 priest)

  •  then that the two priest go to the 2nd island then the priest and the cannibal return to the 1st island..(2nd island a priest and a cannibal-1st island 2 priests and 2 cannibals) 

  • then the remaining two priest will go to the 2nd island.. and then cannibal will return in the 1st island..(2nd island 3 priests-1st island 3 cannibals)

  •  then two cannibals will go to the 2nd island and the cannibal will return in the 1st island.(2nd island 3 priests and 1 cannibal-1st island 2 cannibals)

  •  and the remaining two cannibal will go to the 2nd island.. that's it..haha

good luck....
