This is the sixtieth puzzle that appears in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must examine Claudia. In order to solve this puzzle, you must use the examples to determine if the scales will tip left, right, or stay balanced.

Contents

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Use the results of examples 1 and 2 to simplify the relative weight of the groups of cats being weighed.

    Look closely to find an accurate equivalent.

Hint Two
    Example 2 shows that two black cats and a white cat equals three red cats.

    Swap out the red cats for the black and white ones and see what you can figure out now.

Hint Three
    Example 1 shows you that five black cats equal the weight of four white cats.

    If you substitute the four white cats on the right side of the scale for black cats, you end up with six black cats.

    Put that together with what you learned from Hint Two, and you're very close to the answer.

[edit] When Failed

Try again.

Use the results of examples 1 and 2 to find the solution.

[edit] When Completed

Excellent!

If you replace the red and white cats with black ones, this puzzle becomes much simpler.

Once you make the replacement, you'll have six black cats on the right and six black cats plus a white one on the left. Thus, the scale must tip to the left.

[edit] Solution
