This is the twenty-eighth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must examine the vegetable cart. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine the path that depicts the path of the axle when rolled on a flat surface.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The wheel's shape is essentially a triangle with the corners rounded off. Since the axle is positioned close to one of the corners, you can expect the pattern it creates to be rather unconventional.

Hint Two
    The axle is positioned far from the center of the wheel, so you can expect the path it traces to contain an exaggerated up-and-down movement.

Hint Three
    B and E are not the answer. Choose from the remaining three options, and don't forget what you read in Hint Two!

[edit] Messages

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Try imagining how the wheel rotates again.

[edit] When Completed

That's right!

Diagram A correctly traces the path of the axle as the wheel rolls.

You probably won't see this wheel on a train anytime soon, but it sure would be fun to watch it bounce around, wouldn't it?

[edit] Progress

615 Picarats and 49 Hint Coins.
