This is the thirteenth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Macaroon. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine how much bigger the large triangle is compared to the smaller one.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    You don't need to do any kind of special calculation here. In fact, all you need is a little intuition.

Hint Two
    How would things look if you rotated the smaller triangle?

Hint Three
    By now you've tried visualizing what things would look like if you rotated the triangle around, yes?

    If you've done that, you should be able to see how many smaller triangles fit in the larger one. Just count them up.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Focus your attention on the smaller of the two triangles.

[edit] When Completed

That's right!

If you think to flip the little triangle around as shown, it should only take a moment to realize that four of the smaller triangles will fit in the larger one.

[edit] Solution


The bigger triangle is four times larger than the smaller triangle.

[edit] Progress

320 Picarats and 33 Hint Coins.
