Question:Six men and two boys wanted to cross a river. The small boat they were using could only hold one man or two boys at a time. How did they cross the river?

First trip across the two boys cross, one gets out. the other boy returns and a man takes the boat across. The boy that is there takes the boat back.. on every other trip the first boy returns the two boy cross again one staying. It takes 8 round trips. On eack trip one of the boys returns the boat. The last trip the two boys cross. That's the way it's done.
they put the 2 boys in the boat. the men swam across.
I like the answer braindamaged gave you, good lateral thinking.
No one said anything about everyone using the boat to cross.
They walked across it.
