Question description

You need to get three items across a river; a Fox, a Sheep, and a 50 pound bag of Jelly Beans. You can only move one thing at a time. Some items have rules. The Fox cannot be left alone with the Sheep, and the Sheep cannot be left alone with the Jelly Beans. If you violate the rules, something gets eaten and you lose!

YOU are also part of this problem. Where ever you are, nothing gets eaten. So if you cross over with the Fox first, the Sheep and the Jelly Beans are by themselves! Oops - no more Beans... But if you bring the Fox to the same side as the Sheep - you are there so no one gets eaten. (If you leave them together, well that's a different story!)

It takes 7 moves! Good Luck!
