You have a chicken, a fox, and a bag of seed to bring across a river in a basket. The basket can only hold you to move it and one item. If you leave the chicken alone with the feed, the chicken will eat the feed. If you leave the chicken alone with the fox, the fox will eat the chicken! How do you bring all three across safely?

Keep in mind you can always bring an item back across.

Take the chicken first, then go back and get the feed and take the chicken back. Then take the fox, and the chicken again.

Yes, but what do you bring next?

I  think the answer is leave the chicken. Because, the chicken will be trying to eat the seads and not trying to save you. A fox will not try to eat the sead  which means you can eat it, and if something is tasty to him, and it is trying to attack you, then he will  eat it.

First take the chicken to the other side , then take the fox to the other side while returning take chicken and leave where it took from and then take seed to the other side then finally chicken to the other side
