This is the eighty-fifth puzzle that appears in the US version of Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must examine the Laytonmobile. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine the difference in miles between the distance the man had driven and the distance his girlfriend drove.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Distances both to and from your destination were exactly the same. On the way there, you drove 180 miles, and on the way home, you drove one way minus 150 miles.

Hint Two
    Think about the distance your girlfriend drove. On the way there, she drove one way minus 180 miles. On the way home, she drove 150 miles.

    The total distance each person drove must include the trip out and the trip back. If you combine the earlier information about each leg of the trip, you'll see that your girlfriend drove a total of "one way minus 30 miles."

Hint Three
    Using the principle in Hint Two and the information from Hint One, you can express the distance you drove as "one way plus 30 miles."

    With that said, the difference between the distance you drove and the distance your girlfriend drove should be clear as day.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Think you need to draw up a formula to solve this one? Think again. Finding the solution is simpler than you'd imagine.

[edit] When Completed

That's right!

As shown in the above chart, your girlfriend drove a total of one way minus 30 miles. You drove a total of one way plus 30 miles. Therefore, you drove 60 more miles.

[edit] Solution


The man drove 60 miles more than his girlfriend.

[edit] Progress

3305 Picarats and 154 Hint Coins.
