# Hard riddle: A man has to get a fox, a chicken, and a sack of corn across a river.

There is nothing so annoying as a puzzle you can’t solve while you can’t find the answer either. It is so frustrating to watch a magician do his tricks.

And in the end, when you ask: ‘how did you just do that?’, you always get the same answer: ‘a magician never explains his tricks’. In this web you can also find the answers and explanations at the bottom of the article.

Now, the riddle today is:

A man has to get a fox, a chicken, and a sack of corn across a river. He has a rowboat, and it can only carry him and one other thing. If the fox and the chicken are left together, the fox will eat the chicken. If the chicken and the corn are left together, the chicken will eat the corn.

How does the man do it?

## The Solution:

The man and the chicken cross the river, (the fox and corn are safe together), he leaves the chicken on the other side and goes back across.

The man then takes the fox across the river, and since he can’t leave the fox and chicken together, he brings the chicken back.

Again, since the chicken and corn can’t be left together, he leaves the chicken and he takes the corn across and leaves it with the fox.

He then returns to pick up the chicken and heads across the river one last time.
