A clown has to cross an extremly long bridge in one trip to reach the other Carnies. He is carring four bags of gold, each weighing ten pounds. The clown weighs one-hundred-and-twenty pounds. The bridge, being old and swing-y, can only hold one-hundred-and-fifty pounds. How does the clown cross in ONLY one trip with all his gold?
Think about it...
He goes on a rapid diet to lose ten pounds
I think he ties a piece of string around one bag and leaves it at the start of the bridge, walks across with the other 3 bags, then pulls the string.
It is acceptable, but not what we're looking for!
He can still cross. With him and the gold weighing 150 pounds, he's not past the maximum weight limit of the bridge
That's not what it says. Clown is 120, gold is 40. bridge holds 150
Why would you think someone would write a riddle that doesn't need an answer?
