This is the seventy-sixth puzzle that appears in the UK version of Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Pauly. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine which allotment will be the most expensive to rent.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    You can find the answer by adding up the length of fence around all the allotments, but there is another way...

Hint Two
    At first glance, doesn't A look like it has the shortest length of fence?

    Yes, it does!

Hint Three
    Each individual square has four sides, so an allotment of 12 squares will have 48 sides in total, with some shared between squares.

    The number of sides being shared by neighbouring squares will differ greatly depending on the shape of the allotment.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

[edit] When Completed

That's right! D is the most expensive.

When considering how many sides of each plant-sized square need to be fenced, you don't even need to count the length of fence in order to see that D will cost the most.

By the way, if you do add up the lengths for all the allotments, you'll find that A requires 14 sides be fenced, B 20, C 18 and D 26. So you should, of course, choose allotment A.

[edit] Solution


Allotment D will be the most expensive.

[edit] Progress

2875 Picarats and 143 Hint Coins.
