Three adults and three children went for a walk and found themselves at a river bank. There was no bridge to cross the river, but they found a boat at the shore. It was small and could only carry one adult or two children at a time. What is the least number of trips that must be made to get everyone across the river?

First trip: :D :D then one :D comes back
Second trip: :D :D then one :D comes back
Third trip: :evil: then one :D comes back
Fourth trip: :evil: then one :D comes back
Fifth trip: :D :D then one :D comes back
Sixth trip: :twisted: then one :D comes back
Seventh trip: :D :D then one :D comes back

My next puzzle: Just for fun with the names so please don't be angry with me. :cry: :mrgreen:

There are three brides named Ms.Dixie, Ms.Lennye and Ms Lizzy, and three grooms named Mr. Hardi, Mr.Unknownsu and Mr.Love.

Mr.Hardi says that he is going to marry Ms.Dixie.
Ms.Dixie says that her future husband is Mr.Unknownsu.
Mr.Unknownsu says that he is going to marry Ms.Lennye.

All three are lying. Can you figure out who will marry whom?
8) :mrgreen:

Good luck!!!

I don't think I'm too cute for him. I think he finds me too dull. I guess I'm not cool enough for him.
And regarding the age, he's not old at all, not for me at least.
It's so sad when love isn't reciprocal. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Well okay your evilness. Frist we terminate all fun. :twisted: We make Hardi, Lenny and all others to disapper. "OSSOM TOSSOM TIBUD KINNI" done! Now what we have left, is feelingless and stupid mathematical constants, called a1, a2, a3; and b1, b2, b3;

What we know is: (c like syntaks)
b1 != a1;
a1 != b2;
b2 != a2;

Therefore: (Is it really needed to continue?)

b2 == a3;
a1 == b3;
a2 == b1;
