This is the sixty-sixth puzzle that appears in the UK version of Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Lucy. In order to solve this puzzle, you must use the clues to determine who A borrowed money from.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Borrowing and lending can get quite complicated. To make things easier, you should think of each transaction only in terms of one person lending money to another. Doing this means you need to find five transactions.

    You already know two...

Hint Two
    Know know who A and C lent money to, but not who B, D and E did.

    However, since B borrowed money from A, and D borrowed money from C, you know that B, D and E must have lent money to one of A, C and E.

Hint Three
    From Hint 2, you know that E lent money to either A, C or E. Of course, you can't lend money to yourself, so that leaves A or C, and you can eliminate A based on the information in the puzzle. So E lent money to C.

    That leaves two more transactions to find...

Too bad!

That's right! A borrowed money from D.

If you trace the flow of money according to the stated conditions, the answer becomes obvious.
