This is the eighth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Chester. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine which items Luke ordered, making sure his items cost double the amount of what Professor Layton ordered.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Start by adding up the cost of the entire meal.

Hint Two
    Luke's meal cost twice as much as the professor's. That means the ratio of Luke's cost compared to the professor's cost must be 2:1.

Hint Three
    The cost of the entire meal comes out to 105 pounds. This total needs to be split to fit our ratio of 2:1. Therefore, Luke's meal cost 70 pounds and the professor's cost 35.

    What combination of food and drink items can you find that add up to 70?

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Perhaps you aren't going about this the right way. Why don't you try a different approach?

[edit] When Completed

Good work!

If you calculate the total tab, you'll see that the meal cost 105 pounds. Knowing the total, Luke must have ordered 70 pounds' worth of food, and the professor 35. Once you've got those numbers, the rest is easy.

"Are you sure you didn't order too much?"

"Nope! This stew's great, and this steak's--CHOMP--great too!"

"Well then...eat up, I suppose."

[edit] Solution


Circle the items on the right as shown.

[edit] Progress

295 Picarats and 33 Hint Coins.
