Citrix,
This collaboration is implied by the statement of the task. However, you are looking at the individuals rather than the collective group. I believe that you should be seeking a solution that maximizes the expected number of survivors. Perhaps you should consider the idea of sacrificing one individual to save the majority of the group.
