This is the one hundred and thirty-third puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Benny. In order to solve this puzzle, you must divide the pallets so each group contains ten 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 four numbers between one and five so that they add up to ten, for example 2 + 2 + 2 + 4, 3 + 3 + 2 + 2 or 4 + 1 + 1 + 4.

    Can you find any more such combinations?

Hint Two
    If you followed Hint 1 and tried thinking of four-number combinations that add up to ten, you'll likely have realised that there are only two that include a five: 1 + 1 + 3 + 5 and 1 + 2 + 2 + 5.

Hint Three
    The four pallets along the right edge of the timber yard need to be grouped together. Start by making this set and take it from there.

    Oh, and here's another hint: one of the pallets marked ? has just one log.

Super Hint
    One of the pallets marked ? has one log on it, while the other has two.

    The mystery pallet at the top right should be used in the combination 3, 2, 3, ?.

    The other mystery pallet, in the bottom left, should be part of the combinations 5, 3, 1, ?.
