A Cool Math Lesson

Today in math, I am homeschooled, I learned something cool.  Since my sister had done it before and my dad helped her, it was really easy!  The question was:

Herb, Ann and Sandy cross from one bluff to another in a basket on a rope.  The basket can carry 160 pounds.  Herb weighs 100 pounds; Ann weighs 70 pounds; and Sandy weighs 85 pounds.  How can all three cross safely? Hint: Each time the basket crosses to a bluff, someone must bring it back so another person can cross.

Comment the answer.  Don’t look at the comment with the name Julia Hocker, it has the answers!  My mom couldn’t even do it!
