This is the sixty-first puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Martine. In order to solve this puzzle, you must calculate how many guests stayed at the hotel on the 24th.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Start by focusing on the 28th. 16 guests checked in that day, and 13 guests checked out, which means the hotel had three more guests that night than it did the previous night.

    Since you know that 25 people stayed in the hotel on the 28th, you consequently know that 22 people stayed in the hotel on the 27th.

Hint Two
    Continue applying the method given in Hint 1 to work out how many people stayed in the hotel on other nights.

    On the 27th, 19 people checked out and 11 people checked in, which means that eight fewer people stayed there that night than on the previous night.

    In other words, 30 people stayed in the hotel on the 26th.

Hint Three
    18 guests checked in on the 26th and 12 checked out. This means there were six more guests on the 26th than there were the previous day, and so the number of guests on the 25th was 24.

    14 guests checked in on the 25th and 15 checked out, meaning there was one fewer guest than on the previous night, the 24th. You should now know exactly how many guests there were on the 24th!

Super Hint
    There's actually an even easier way of solving this puzzle. The total number of guests who checked out of the hotel over this period was 59. The total number of guests who checked in was also 59, which means that the number of guests who checked out and checked in is the same.

    In other words, there was no overall increase or decrease in the number of guests in the hotel between the 28th and the 24th.
