Problem of the Week (POW)

due by Sept 24

Three friendly Martians land in a vast open area, near a river.
Three campers find the Martians and want to take them to a
nearby city. However, before they can get to the campers’
trucks, they must cross a river in a small fishing boat. The
boat will hold only two “beings” (human or Martian) at a
time. How can the three campers and three Martians cross the
river? The number of Martians can never exceed the number
of campers (for obvious reasons!).
