This is the ninth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy. To access this puzzle, you must interact with the locked door. In order to solve this puzzle, you must line up the dials so that each side equals the same number.

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Since the total value of the symbols in each quadrant needs to be the same, don't you think it would be helpful to work out the total value of all the symbols you're working with?

Hint Two
    The total value of every ● and ♦ on the device is 60. Dividing this total by four gives you 15, so you need the dials to be aligned such that every quadrant has a combined value of 15.

Hint Three
    Okay, so you know that each quadrant has a total value of 15, but you're having difficulty aligning the dials in such a way as to achieve this?

    You might find it helpful to focus on just one quadrant to begin with. For example, look at the quadrant for which the inner dial has a value of four. What do you need to add to this to get a total of 15?

Super Hint
    Following on from Hint 3, start by focusing on the larger value, such as 8, 7 and 6:
    4 + 8 + ? + ? = 15
    4 + 7 + ? + ? = 15

    Try out the various combinations, spinning the necessary dials into place and narrowing down the potential solutions. You'll quickly notice that the inner and outer dials are both fixed, which reduces the number of possibilities you have to try.

Too bad.

Make sure you haven't made a mistake in your calculations.

Each quadrant should have a total value of 15.

All right, it's time to push on!
