This is the one hundred and twenty-eighth puzzle that appears in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. This puzzle can be accessed through Professor Layton's Challenges. In order to solve this puzzle, you must arrange the numbers so that each row and column equal the same number when multiplied.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    There are multiple correct answers, so the best thing to do is just work patiently until you find a solution.

    For those of us without patience, here's a more obvious hint: you can eliminate the five tile.

Hint Two
    The five tile isn't used in your answer, nor is the seven tile.

    Now that you know the seven tiles you need to work with, see if you can find the answer.

Hint Three
    When you multiply each row of numbers, they should all equal 72.

    If you still feel like you could use a hint, here's one more. Place the two tile in the center slot of the lock.

[edit] When Failed

Try again!

This is a hard puzzle, it's true. Keep at it.

[edit] When Completed

That's right!

As long as all three of your combinations equal out to 72, you've got the right answer.

The diagram above shows one of many possible correct configurations.

The only tiles you can't use in your answer are the five and seven tiles.

[edit] Solution


Arrange the numbers as shown.

[edit] Progress

4715 Picarats and 200 Hint Coins.
