Ready for another mathematical adventure? Complete your Intergalactic Passport Application Form and prepare for a journey to the Planet Turasmara.

Challenge 5: Travel Problems

The largest river on Turasmara is Abhainn Mhòr. When the river needs to be crossed they use a boat (I know a planet with spacecraft still they use a boat) but there are some species on Turasmara that cannot travel together.

The Flig cannot be near a Nwen as the Flig might eat the Nwen.

The Nwen cannot be near a Mlunka as the Nwen might eat the Mlunka.

The Flig and Mlunka CAN be together because Fligs are quite picky with their food and don’t like the taste of Mlunkas!

You have a Flig, a Nwen and a Mlunka all wanting to cross a river but only one boat.

Can you work out a way to get them all across safely?
