    You have M missionaries and C cannibals on one side of a river (M > C). There is one rowboat
    which can hold two people in it. If there are ever more cannibals on one side of the river than there
    are missionaries on that side, the cannibals will eat the missionaries there (failed solution). Find the
    minimum sequence of moves that will take all the missionaries and cannibals across the river, without
    any harm to the missionaries.

    3) Do your homework first. Only post the part of the script you're having trouble with! There are generally two types of people- ones that simply dump their entire page or problem and expect everyone to spend hours solving everything for them, and those that do their own homework first, and only ask very specific, manageable questions. The later invariably gets more and better responses from others. When you're lazy, do not expect us to be hardworking for you.

    As an example, lets say you're working on a long script that uses the "switch" statement of JavaScript, and it's returning errors. You could either:

    i) Post the entire script and simply say "Please debug this script for me!"
    ii) Or, localize the problem yourself first and post instead "Can someone tell me the syntax of the switch statement in JavaScript?"

    The second question will get a LOT more quality responses, as it is concise, manageable, and not overwhelming. Remember, ask for the world, and you'll get nothing. Ask for a little, and you'll get a lot.

    dude, that's not even a programming question...

    Just like the other it's merely a logic puzzle; probably for a math class.
