The four jugglers were successful in fleeing to Newtonia along with their monkeys (The Voyage of the Monkeys). However, the king of Einsteinia conquered the kingdom of Newtonia and started committing the same kind of atrocities on his new subjects. The jugglers thought of fleeing to Edisonia in order to save the lives of themselves and their monkeys. En route, they met another juggler with his monkey who wanted to flee along with them. The jugglers agreed to take the new juggler with them.

The only way to escape to Edisonia was to cross the same river they crossed earlier. Also they had to use the same kind of raft. So the raft could accommodate a maximum of three living creatures at a time. Also a monkey should not be present with other masters if its own master is not present, as in such a case the monkey creates huge noise. All the five jugglers and only one monkey knew how to raft.

Devise a method to transport all of them across to Edisonia in the least possible trips. Provide a detailed solution for your answer.
