    Default this is a hard riddle... can some1 help?

    ok, there's three explorers that have to get to the other side of the river, but there's 3 cannibals on the other side, the cannibals wont attack unless they outnumber their victom, but the boat only carries 2 people, and it HAS TO HAVE 2 people in it for it to work
    x= explorer c = cannibal

    ___________c c c_________


    ___________x x x__________

    srry if it's confusing, but thats how my teacher told it to me... and i cant figure it out, and please leave out the sarcastic answers... like... ride the alligators over
    if i left out details, it was because thats the way my teacher told it to me, and i think its for a grade, so i want it to be exactly the way he told it
    in response to living dead girl or w/e ur name is... there's only 1 boat, therefore, the first step is wrong... srry
    what do u guys mean in the first step... explorer and cannible cross.. that doesnt make sense cuz they're on different sides of the river, and there's only 1 boat, and there has to be 2 people in the boat for it to be able to work >.<
