  One of my kids told me this last week...it's a good one to start your week 
off...give it to your kids and see if any get it.
  Problem: There are 4 people on one side of the river. One can cross the river 
(one-way) in 1 minute, one in 2 minutes, one in 5 minutes and the last one in 
10 minutes. How fast can they all get across the river if only 2 people fit in 
the boat and the slowest person in the boat must row each time?
  Just the above problem is on the link below. That page then has links to the 
numerical answer only (to see if you got it right) and then a separate link to 
the complete solution (if you just can't figure it out).
