Eight efficient blacksmiths (Posted on 2015-08-13) Difficulty: 3 of 5
A puzzle by Polish mathematician Paul Vaderlind:

If a blacksmith requires five minutes to put on a horseshoe, show how can 8 blacksmiths shoe 10 horses in less than half an hour?

The catch: A horse can stand on three legs, but not on two.
