This is the fifth puzzle the appears in the UK version of Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must interact with the clock in the clock tower. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine how many times the clock hands will pass each other within a 12 hour period.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The hands pass over each other once an hour. So in 12 hours they will pass 12 times...

    Or will they?

Hint Two
    The hands start off on top of each other at 12 noon, so that doesn't count as a pass.

Hint Three
    One pass every hour.

    But the hands don't pass over each other on the hour. They will pass at around 5 minutes past 1, or 33 minutes past 6.

    So what time will it be the last time they pass?

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

[edit] When Completed

That's right!

The hands pass over each other 10 times. If you think about it the answer is obvious, but you might have been tricked by the question.

The hands pass over each other once an hour, but since they start and end directly on top of each other, two of the twelve hours do not count as a pass.

Why not try it on a real clock?
