This is the twenty-eighth puzzle that appears in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Matthew. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine which point the black dot will be at when the shape in Diagram B is flipped.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    If you flip the shape in Diagram A, you get the shape shown in the upper-right part of the screen. Try to visualize where that black dot is when the white side is up.

    Diagram B is just a rotated version of Diagram A, so you know that the position of the black dot in Diagram B must also rotate accordingly.

Hint Two
    When the shape is positioned as shown in A, the black dot is behind the middle-right prong of the shape. Flip the shape over and you'll see it on the middle-left prong.

    See how the dot moves when you flip the shape over? Now think about where that dot should be in the orientation shown in B.

Hint Three
    Moving clockwise, when the white side is facing up (as in the left picture of B), the black dot is two spaces ahead of the red dot.

    Now you should pretty much know where the black dot is. Just visualize the shape flipping over and you'll have your answer.
