This is the ninety-seventh puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Beatrix. In order to solve this puzzle, you must make sure all the sisters are carrying the correct number of pumpkins, making sure each basket totals at 34 kilograms.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    As a starting point, here's how much each sister is currently carrying:

    A: 16 + 3 = 19
    B: 4 + 2 + 6 = 12
    C: 12 + 1 = 13
    D: 11 + 8 = 19

Hint Two
    Given that each sister carries 34 kilograms in total:

    A can carry another 15 kilos.
    B can carry another 22 kilos.
    C can carry another 21 kilos.
    D can carry another 15 kilos.

    How can you divide the pumpkins so that both A and D carry another 15 kilos?

Hint Three
    We know that both A and C end up carrying the same number of pumpkins, so you know that the 15 kilograms of additional weight carried by A can't be made up by one 15-kilogram pumpkin.

    Why? Because C needs at least two more pumpkins to make up the additional 21 kilos she has to carry.

Super Hint
    Give A a five-kilo pumpkin and a ten-kilo one, then give D one weighing 15 kilos.

    Give C a seven-kilo pumpkin and a 14-kilo pumpkin, then the answer should be right in front of you.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

Are you sure the sisters each have a total of 34 kilograms in their baskets?

[edit] When Completed


A carries pumpkins weighing three, five, ten and 16 kilos.
The pumpkins B carries weigh two, four, six, nine and 13 kilos.
C's basket holds pumpkins weighing one, seven, 12 and 14 kilos.
D carries just three pumpkins, weighing eight, 11 and 15 kilos each.

If they don't sell them all, will they have to lug them back home again?

[edit] Solution


Arrange the pumpkins as shown.

[edit] Progress

3385 Picarats and 240 Hint Coins.
