## River crossers - 03/27/13 09:18 AM

26 guys (named A to Z!) have to cross a river.

Only one canoe is available, and it can take at most 2 guys.

A is the fastest: takes him 1 second to row across (told you he was fast!).

Then we have B:2 seconds, C:3 seconds and so on to Y:25 seconds, Z:26 seconds.

When 2 guys are crossing, the slowest one rows (Why? To make this puzzle harder!)

What is shortest possible time to get all 26 guys across?
