This is the tenth puzzle that appears in the UK version of Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must interact with the bookcase. In order to solve this puzzle, you must find the values of each letter.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Two of the equations have D as their answer.

    Your starting point should be to compare these two equations.

Hint Two
    A + C and A x 4 both equal D.
    Since A x 4 is the same as A + A + A + A, C must equal A x 3.

Hint Three
    C - B = B. This means that C = 2 x B.

    You also know from the second hint that C = 3 x A.

    Only one single-digit number is divisible by both 2 and 3. Find it and you've found the key to solving the puzzle.

Too bad!

[edit] When Completed

That's right! ABCD = 2368.

Since A + C and A x 4 both equal D, then C must equal A x 3. If C - B = B, then C must also equal B x 2. The only single-digit number divisible by both 2 and 3 is 6. Once you know that C = 6, the rest is easy.

[edit] Solution
