# Riddle: 4 Men and the Bridge

Try to work out the solution yourself, there will be spoilers in Comments – Don’t scroll down if you want to try and solve it yourself!

Remember that if any of the men cross the bridge and there are still some men (or man) left behind, one of those men who has crossed needs to go back with the torch, as the men (man) left behind cannot cross the bridge without it.

If two of the men cross the bridge, then the time it takes for them to cross the bridge is the time it takes for the slower person.

Solution video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udjN9xyW6MA – Did you manage to solve it?

Yes, I know the bridge that I drew (I’m ever so brilliant at art, aren’t I?) isn’t long. Just imagine that it is and carry on with the riddle!

Pause the video whenever you need to, to take down the details. The solution is quite simple and you just need to put your mind to it. NO CHEATING!! Try and find the fastest time you can come up with before you start searching the web for solutions.

Have Fun! ๐

Also I cant cross the bridge with guy 1 because his wolf will eat my chicken

The sum of all the people's times are 18. Since they cannot go any slower than their time an they all must cross the bridge then it is impossible to do it in 17 minutes. Am I wrong? …….

1 and 2 wiil go then 1 will come back then 3 and 4 will go then 2 will come back 2 will take 1 and cross the bridge

and the total time used is 17 minutes โบโบโบ๐๐๐๐๐

senang aja

banda

1 and 2 go – 2 minutes

1 goes back – 3 minutes

10 and 5 go -13 minutes

2 goes back – 15 minutes

2 and 1 go – 17 minutes

got 19

wait if it is a bridge then that means its one way which means you dont need a flashlight aka torch so there

1 beat everybody up with the torch and cross – 1minute

Got 19

5 brings 1 across: 5

1 go back: 6

1 brings across 2: 7

5 goes back: 12

5 brings 10: 17

1 and 2 go – 2 minutes

1 comes back – 1 minute

5 and 10 go – 10 minute

2 comes back – 2 minute

1 and 2 go – 2 minute

Total 17 minutes๐

1 stays in middle of bridge holding torch, one by one cross and finally 1 also cross with last man crossing

Question is wrong, it takes 19 minutes atleรกt. Or they are throwing back the torch from halfway.

ok this is stupid if they want to get across they need to build a waaaaallllll!!!!

ten and one first then 2 and 5

1 has superman's flight ability, 2 has hulk's superjump ability, 5 has goku's instant transmission ability, 10 has green lantern ability so they all don't need the frickin torch ๐

mine is 17 minutes

1 and 2 cross: 2

minutes

1 comes back: 1 minutes

5 and 10 cross : 10 minutes

2 comes back: 2 minutes

1 and 2 cross: 2 minutes

total : 17 minutes

1 n 2 goes. 2 minutes

1 comes back. 3 minutes

10 n 5 goes. 13 minutes

2 comes back 15 minutes

1 n 2 goes. 17 minutes

1 and 2 = 2 mins

1 comes back = 3 mins

1 and 5 = 5 mins

1 returns = 9 mins

19 minutes is possible

1 and 2 cross 1 crosses back 5 and ten cross 2 crosses back 1 and 2 cross end 2+1+10+2+2=17 easy

1 with 2

1 comes back

5 and 10

2 comes back

1 and 2

Heres another way. The two fastest cross the bridge. 1 then takes the lanter over then let the two slowest cross it. Then 2 takes the lantern then comes to you and guides you to the other side. Thats equal to 17 minuetes

Thats the shortest bridge ever ยฏ

(ใ)/ยฏ1&2: 2

1comes back: 3

5&10:13

2comes back:15mins

1&2 :17

1 steals the flashlight and beats up the others they are very weak except 1.2 is critically injured while 3&4 are unconscious. 1 feels bad about his actions and calls his mom and jumps off the bridge. But what's this? 2 crawls all the way over the bridge 2 is suffering from hypothermia. 3&4 had died by a lion. 2 gets up and runs to the nearest car. He finds a spare key inside the car and closes and locks the car door. 2 is now unconscious. Then it is daytime and 2s car gets towed. DUNDUNDUNNN 4 is the guy in the tow truck 4 is a survivor! But where is 3

1 and 2 go, then they throw the flashlight to 5 and 10, but it falls under the bridge, so they all get abandoned.

1 kills 5,10 then 1 grabs 2's hand and they crossed the bridge then they married – 3 mins easy

10 Takes 5 across 5 comes back and brings 2 across and 2 goes back to bring 1 across and 1 brings back the torch so 2+5+10=17

19 is the lowest I can get

one carries the slow pokes and does it in 5 minutes….

2 will give the torch to no. 1 then no. 1 will cross them
