This is the twelfth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Grousley. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine how much of the painting is taken up by clouds and how much is taken up by sky.

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    You never know what secrets the area around the window might hide. Try using those studs stuck around the frame of the window to simplify things.

Hint Two
    Open the Memo function and, using the studs around the window, divide the picture into 10 squares. There, now doesn't that make things easier?

Hint Three
    Compare each square with the others. By now, perhaps you've managed to spot that some of the squares have the same designs as other squares but are inverted in color scheme. Any pair of squares you find like this have the same amount of sky and cloud, right?

    But you still have to deal with those other squares that are completely blue.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Take another long, careful look at the puzzle.

[edit] When Completed

Nice job!

The key here is to use the studs surrounding the picture to divide it up. Once you do that, it should be clear that B and F, C and I, D and G, and E and H are all simply pairs of the same drawings with the color reversed. This means that in these eight areas, there are four squares of sky and four squares of clouds. The remaining two squares, A and J, are solid blue, so in the end, there are six squares of sky and four squares of clouds.

[edit] Solution
