This is the thirty-fourth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Hanna. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out how long it will take to reach the 25th floor.

Contents

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Using the time it takes to travel from the first to the fifth floors as a base, you should be able to work out how long it takes to travel to the 25th floor.

    The distance from the first to the 25th is how many times greater than the distance from the first to the fifth?

Hint Two
    Is the time it takes to travel from the first to the fifth floor the same as the time it takes to travel five floors?

    Focus on how many floors you're travelling, not the numbers of the floors you're travelling to...

Hint Three
    Going from the first to the fifth floor only involves climbing four floors.

    How many floors do you climb to get from the first to the 25th?

Super Hint
    You need to climb 24 floors to go from the first floor to the 25th.

    To go from the first to the fifth floor, you need to climb four floors.

    If you put these two facts together, you'll see that the journey between the first and 25th floor will take six times as long as the journey between the first and fifth floor.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

This puzzle looks like nothing more than simple calculation, but perhaps there's more to it than that.

[edit] When Completed

That's right!

From the first floor to the fifth floor, you go up four floors, not five, and from the first floor to the 25th, you go up 24 floors.

If four floors take 15 seconds, 24 floors take six times as long: 90 seconds!

It seems a bit lazy for the man to buy flowers at the hotel, though. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt and assume it's an impromptu proposal!

[edit] Solution

It will take the man 90 seconds to reach the 25th floor.

[edit] Progress

1115 Picarats and 101 Hint Coins.
