This is the seventy-fifth puzzle that appears in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Agnes. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine the fewest number of wires that must be used to create a wire cube.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Think about a corner of a cube and how many lines meet at that point.

Hint Two
    Three lines meet at each corner on a cube.

    Imagine a corner where a single wire forms two of the three lines. The final line in this corner must come from the end of a different wire.

    Therefore, in every corner, at least one of the three lines comes from the end of a wire.

Hint Three
    There are eight corners to a cube. As discussed earlier, every corner in a cube requires at least one end of a wire.

    Each wire has two ends, right?

[edit] When Failed

Give it another shot.

[edit] When Completed

You need four wires to make the cube.

Three straight lines make up each of the cube's eight corners. At least one wire must terminate at each corner. Since there are eight corners, you'll need eight wire ends to form things properly. Each wire has two ends, so the total number of wires needed is four.

[edit] Solution


Four wires are needed.

[edit] Progress

2705 Picarats and 130 Hint Coins.
