This is the eighteenth puzzle that appears in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Beatrice. In order to solve this puzzle, you must move two matchsticks so that the dustpan is holding the trash.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Can you see how the matchsticks form a dustpan? Notice that the scoop part is pointing up in the picture.

    To put the trash "in" the dustpan, you need to arrange the matches so that the trash is surrounded on three sides.

Hint Two
    Let's just keep the match farthest to the left where it is. Keeping in mind that we need to surround the trash on three sides, the topmost match in the shape starts to look ripe for rearrangement, doesn't it? Now all you need to do is figure out which other match to move.

Hint Three
    Move the match in the upper-right side of the dustpan and the match directly above the trash.

    It shouldn't be hard to determine where these need to go so that the dustpan looks like it's scooping up the trash.
