U2 says "It's a Beautiful

Day" for Math!!

"Beautiful

Day"

video

U2 has a concert that starts in 17 minutes and the band must all cross

a bridge to get there. All four band members begin on the same side of the

bridge. You must help them to cross to the other side.

It is

night. There is only one flashlight. A maximum of 2 people can cross

at any time. Any party who crosses, either 1 or 2 people must have the

flashlight with them. The flashlight must be walked back and forth.

It cannot be tossed, thrown, etc...

Each band member walks at a different

speed. A pair must walk together at the rate of the slower man's

pace:

Bono: 1 minute (to cross bridge)

Edge: 2 minutes

Adam: 5 minutes

Larry: 10 minutes

For example, if Larry and Bono walked

across first, 10 minutes would have elapsed when they got to the other

side. If Larry then returned with the flashlight, a total of 20 minutes

will have passed and you have failed the mission. There is no trick to

this: no swimming, carrying another, etc...
