Problem Solving

Problem: You have a elephant you need to get across a 20m wooden log. The elephant weighs 1.5 ton, but the bridge only supports 750kg.

Design a solution to get the elephant across the bridge.

Medicine: You have a broken log. Why and how did this broken log get here?

Computer Science: “… So we have a Log object, but it can’t store a full elephant.”

The elephant is sent across as an array of legs, a body, and a head inheriting from AnimalHead.

Hollywood: Despite similar logs all breaking in previous scenes, whilst under much less duress, this log will hold to allow for a tension filled moment.

  2. ¿It’s only a cuestion of weigh? … We can aford 3 options:

    a) Put the elephant on a diet (<– that’s a joke)

    b) Cut down the two big ivory tusks, we eliminate weigh exceed and prevent illegal hunting (<– that’s not a joke)

    c) Run it in a hope the shortest time the elephant cross it, the log doesn’t colapse.

    Obviously I first reinforce the damn log just in case.

    Greetings. (excuse the boring speech)
