This is the fifty-seventh puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Bud. In order to solve this puzzle, you must divide the timber pallets into six groups of ten timber logs.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Each pallet contains between one and five logs. You need to work out how to combine the pallets so the total number adds up to ten each time.

    There are many ways of combining the four numbers between one and five so that they add up to ten. In this puzzle, however, only three of those combinations are used. One of the combinations used is 1 + 2 + 2 + 5. Can you work out the other two?

Hint Two
    The three four-pallet combinations used here are as follows:
    1 + 2 + 2 + 5
    1 + 1 + 3 + 5
    1 + 2 + 3 + 4

    There aren't that many pallets in the yard. Start by making four-pallet sets using pallets that have five logs.

Hint Three
    None of the four-pallet sets you need to make involve two adjacent pallets with the same number of logs.

    For example, if you've got two three-log pallets right next to each other, you know that they need to be in different sets.

Super Hint
    Let's start with the corners. Combine four pallets along the bottom, including the one in the bottom-right corner. This should be a 2 + 1 + 4 + 3 = 10 combination.

    Next up, create an L-shaped set in the bottom-left corner: 1 + 5 + 3 + 1 = 10.

    Now you've only got four sets left to make!
