Whapa! We’re not sure how we came up with this one, but it was worth it. So, without further hassle let’s dive into the answer to our One Flashlight for All riddle.

Solving the Riddle

Ready or not, here we go. 

Answer: 17 minutes. 

Want to go over the math?  Let’s go.

Step 1:

The two fastest people cross the bridge together, taking 2 minutes (the time it takes the slower person to cross). The fastest person goes back with the flashlight, taking 1 minute.

Current Time: 3 minutes.

Step 2:

The two slowest people, 5 min and 10 min, cross the bridge together, taking 10 minutes. 

Current Time: 13 minutes.

Step 3:

The second fastest person (2 min) goes back with the flashlight. 

Current Time: 15 minutes.

Last Step:

Finally, the two fastest people cross the bridge together again, taking 2 minutes. Altogether, the crossing takes 2 + 1 + 10 + 2 + 2 = 17 minutes.
