This is the twenty-fourth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Lili. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine the distance between the two folds in the paper.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Think about how much longer one side of the strip was compared to the other one after the first fold.

Hint Two
    Remember, you're being asked to answer in tenths of an inch.

Hint Three
    Consider the location of the first fold your starting point. The second fold must have been positioned one inch away from this location.

    Does that clear things up for you?

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Start by considering where the first fold along the paper strip must be positioned.

[edit] When Completed

That's right!

The distance between the folds is one inch, or 10 tenths of an inch.

If you're having trouble visualizing this, picture that the matchbox shown above has a height of one inch.

Imagine that the areas where one side of the box connects to the top and bottom are the folds in the strip, and you can see how the excess length in both folds can be represented by the other side.

[edit] Solution


The folds are 1 inch (10 tenths of an inch) apart.

[edit] Progress

140 Picarats and 21 Hint Coins.
