This is the twenty-ninth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy. To access this puzzle, you must talk to the policeman. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out how many officers were on the train.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    One officer would be needed in each carriage containing a fugitive, as well as each adjacent carriage. That would mean three officers were required for each fugitive, which makes nine officers in total.

    But is it really that simple?

Hint Two
    What if the three fugitives were all situated with an empty carriage between them? Deploying an officer in the carriage between two fugitives would allow him to man the carriage behind one fugitive and the carriage in front of another simultaneously, killing two birds with one stone.

    If that was the case, maybe seven officers would do the trick...

Hint Three
    How about if all three fugitives got into adjacent carriages? What would the number of officers required be then?

Super Hint
    If all three fugitives got into adjacent carriages, you'd only need one officer in each othe three carriages containing the fugitives, then one officer in front of these three carriages, and one officer behind.

[edit] Messages

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

Think about which carriages the criminals may have been hiding in.

[edit] When Completed

Justice prevails!

Only five officers were needed to ensure the fugitives had nowhere to run. Maybe those crooks should have spread themselves out a bit more!

[edit] Solution

Five officers were on the team.

[edit] Progress

935 Picarats and 88 Hint Coins.
