A Fox, Chicken and Sack of Grain

You have a fox, a chicken and a sack of grain. You must cross a river with only one of them at a time. If you leave the fox with the chicken he will eat it; if you leave the chicken with the grain he will eat it. How can you get all three across safely?

Fox and (little) chicken

Take the chicken over first. Go back and bring the grain next, but instead of leaving the chicken with the grain, come back with the chicken. Leave the chicken on the first side and take the fox with you. Leave it on the other side with the grain. Finally, go back over and get the chicken and bring it over.

Take the chicken first, than go back to get the fox, and grab the chicken to go back, then leave the chicken and bring the grain over and go back to get the chicken.

the chicken goes first and the fox and the con are fine togther ,then man grabs the fox and s=brings him over but since he can’t leave fox with chicken he takes the chicken back across, but then grabs the corn to take over with the fox so the chicken isn’t left with the corn..thus follows he then finishes by grabbing the chicken again lastly.
