This is the forty-fifth puzzle that appears in the UK version of Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Adrea. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine the weight the scales would indicate on the moon for a 600g object.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    To use a scale, you place the object to be weighed on top of the tray.

    Do you see?

Hint Two
    If the gravity is one-sixth, then a 600g object should weigh 100g.

    But the question is, what weight is indicated on the scale?

    Think about what parts a scale is made up of.

Hint Three
    When there's nothing on the tray, a scale will show 0g. But the tray itself also has a certain weight, you know.

    That weight will also be one-sixth on the moon.

[edit] Messages

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

[edit] When Completed

That's right!

The scale will indicate a weight of less than 100g.

A scale is always set to zero with the weight of the scale tray included. So when the same scale is brought to the moon, the tray weighs one-sixth of what it did when the scale was set, and the scale will now indicate less than 0g when nothing is in the tray.

[edit] Solution


The scale will indicate less than 100g.

[edit] Progress

1575 Picarats and 77 Hint Coins.
