RIDDLE ME THIS:

Their are three gaurds and three prisoners who need to cross a river. Their boat only holds two people at a time, and the number of prisoners must NEVER be allowed to outnumber the number of gaurds on either side of the river; otherwise, the prisoners will overpower the gaurds and, well, the story will come to an abrupt end.

Determine how many trips it will take to safely transport all of the gaurds and prisoners across the river, list each of the trips that need to be made and who is in the boat and who is on each of the riverbanks during each trip.
