Intergalactic Adventure - Challenge 5
Ready for a mathematical space adventure? Complete your Intergalactic Passport Application Form and prepare for a journey to the Planet Turasmara.
Created by Scottish Mathematical Council
Challenge 5: Travel Problems
The largest river on Turasmara is Abhainn Mhòr. When the river needs to be crossed they use a space shuttle boat, but there are some alien 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 the river, but only one space shuttle boat.
Can you work out a way to get them all across safely?
