  • He needs to take the sheep over first to keep the cabbage from being eaten. Then he needs to take the fox over, but he needs to bring the sheep back on the return trip. He can then take the cabbage over and leave the sheep there. He can then come back and get the sheep and cross. All three will then be on the other side.

  • He takes the sheep over first, then goes back and grabs the fox. He then drops off the fox and grabs the sheep again, takes it back. Drops the sheep off at the start again and grabs the cabbage, goes over, drops off cabbage, then goes back and gets the sheep. Simple. :)

  • Take the sheep first. Then go back for the cabbage. Leave it on the other side then bring the sheep back to where he started. Then he can take the fox and go back for the sheep

  • He's screwed. If he takes the sheep first, something still gets eaten on the otherside. :O
