There are eleven stepping stones and ten people. On the five lefthand stones, facing the center, stand five of the people. The other five people stand on the five righthand stones, also facing the center. The center stone is not occupied. Find the fewest number of moves for the ten people to end up on the opposite side from where they started. A link to a Java applet is provided for students to try the idea with fewer people.
