Classic 13 Cave Logic Riddle - 25 October

  3. they can both split up and go to a separate cave each which equals 4 caves multiplied by 3 is 12 and then go to one cave with the other person. equaling 4 days in total at its maximum

  4. They can start with adjecent caves and move opposite direction...
    Start with 1st and 13th cave and next day go in to 2nd and 12th cave and so on...
