On a magical island of Fuhgetaboutit, all the animals in the land are rational.

There are ten tigers and one goat. Tigers can eat a goat but since it’s a magical land, the tiger that eats the goat, turns into goat and then can be eaten by the remaining tiger(s).

If we leave them for some time then how many goats and tigers will there be, when we come back?

1 goat

That is incorrect.

Keep trying.

Well if all ten tigers share one goat there would be 10 goats and no tigers…

Also if you leave them for long enough they’ll starve?

But I suppose it is a magical land

No Kevin, keep trying.

No tigers and one goat?

Nope, keep trying.

Does the word “rational” have to do anything with the answer?

If it didn’t, it probably wouldn’t be there.

10 tigers and 1 goat?

Wrong answer. Keep trying.

9 tigers and 1 goat!

Correct Malia.

Nine tiger and one goat — since all animal are rational, once the 1st tiger eats the goat all the rest of tigers would know about this.

You are today’s winner.
