This is the eighth puzzle that appears in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must interact with the flowers on the other side of the river. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine how much money Roland should receive for his share of work.

Contents

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The two workers receive $100 for the job and divide it according to the amount of work each person did. In this case, "work" refers to the number of acres each person seeded.

    Read the puzzle again and think about exactly how much work each person did.

Hint Two
    Since work refers to the number of acres each person seeded, the amount of time each person took isn't a factor in deciding payment.

Hint Three
    Did you see the sentence that said that Roland and Alfred were assigned a 10-acre plot of land to work together and split it in half? What does that tell you about the amount of work each person did?

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Having trouble tracking who worked what when? Don't be distracted by the long explanation!

[edit] When Completed

That's right!

The beginning of the problem says that the two men split the 10-acre plot of land in half so they could work independently.

In other words, they both had the same amount of work assigned to them.

Since each person did half the work, the pair should split $100 right down the middle. Each person gets $50.

[edit] Solution
