# Trench Riddle

You are standing in front of a L-shaped trench. The trench is 5m wide, very deep and continues as far as you can see in both directions. All you found lying around are 2 boards that are strong enough to support your weight, but unfortunately they are both just a bit shorter than 5m. You have no rope, screws, nails or any other way to securely connect the two boards together. All you have are these 2 boards. How do you cross to the other side of the trench?

• Eva

take of your shirt or pants and tie the two boards together

• Roolstar

Hard to explain in written form but here’s my idea:

The 2 boards should end up perpendicular to each other, over the corner of the trench (being L shaped)
Imagine a V shape 5 meters wide (the corner of the trench) and then position the 2 boards as an inverted T over it…

Hope that was clear enough :)

You’re correct, Rool!

The first board lays across the corner, and the second board lays across the first board.

You’re today’s winner.
